Ireland’s Irish-American comedian and television star Des Bishop returns to his native New York for a special encore engagement of “Made in China,” the hilarious story of his real-life journey to China to study Mandarin so he could perform stand-up in front of Chinese audiences. He not only succeeded in learning a notoriously tricky tongue, he landed a hosting job at a busy restaurant, started a comedy club, then found himself on a television dating show seen by over 40 million viewers. His adventures were captured by the Irish broadcaster RTE, which aired Breaking China – a much-discussed, six-part reality series starring Bishop – last year, and once again this year.
