Des Bishop: Mia Mamma – Presented by Lisa Richards
Cork City, Co. Cork
17 September 2022
Mia Mamma is inspired by the ‘star’ of Des Bishop’s life, his mother. His mother died in March 2019 and, of course, it was sad, but he saw a lot of humour in that too and that’s what the show is about.

Don’t miss Des Bishop’s show Mia Mamma, inspired by the ‘star’ of his life, his mother, who died in March 2019.

Des says: 'I am often asked “where do you get your material from?” My mother died in March 2019 and, of course, it was sad, and grief can be tough sometimes, but I saw a lot of funny in that too. I did a show about my Dad being sick back in 2010 and I couldn’t face my mother in the afterlife because I know her first question would be “your father got a show, how come I didn’t get one?”

So this is a show about MY mother. It’s a show about motherhood and sacrifice, anxiety and grief, the mistakes you make as a mother and a son and the hard road to forgiveness and finally it’s about loss, grief and the chaos that surrounds it'.
