One of Ireland’s most successful comedians returns to Australia with a show about getting older. Shocked by turning 40, Des has caught himself saying things like 'in my day’. Not married and without kids, Des thoroughly enjoys being the backseat parent amongst his friends. This show sees Des tackle the issues confronting him these days: modern day parenting, why he’s glad he’s not a teenager nowadays, erectile dysfunction, would you kill Hitler as a baby and why Des was inspired by his niece to end period shaming. It’s straight stand-up at its best.
