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'.
