Des Bishop

Last year, Irish-American comic Des Bishop moved to China to learn the language so that he could tell the country his jokes. The experience culminated in him opening (in Chinese) for Joe Wang, and taught him more than just the language; much of which he’s sharing in his act “Made in China” currently wrapping up a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.

Earlier this week Des released a comedic video of him rapping about Chinese state media:

Bishop also created a 6-part documentary, called Breaking China, about his time in China for Irish broadcaster RTÉ. Tracking it down online was a bit fruitless, but there are a couple episodes that have found their way to Youku.
