Of the many things we have to thank America for (endless controversy and "discussion" about illegal wars, renditions and troops passing through our supposedly neutral airspace, Garth Brooks and Roseanne Barr) one that deserves a metaphysical punch in the arm is Des Bishop - a comedian too crap to make it in the US. He came here a few years back and through sheer novelty power managed to get on TV to make our home grown comedians look better by comparison.
Still milking the teat of his fame from a TV show which exposed the shocking truth that people on low wages aren't paid very much he was on the radio yesterday morning talking to someone with genuine talent (Ray D'arcy) when he made a joke about Derek Mooney being gay. Ray's attempts at "covering" for this "gaffe" involved saying "Well, before Des outs anyone else, lets move along".
Now, I have some questions
1) Why are people still talking to Des Bishop?
2) I was a comedian for about two weeks a few years ago as well, and people *laughed* at my jokes. When do I get my radio interview with Ray D'arcy?
3) Who *didn't* know Derek Mooney was as gay as a pink christmas in assless pants?
4) Given that his sole talent is acting camp, being adorable to the over eighties and leaping around the stage like a massive stereotype, will this revelation damage his career?
