Des Bishop: Mia Mamma
Kilkenny City, Co. Kilkenny
4 February 2022
Des Bishop is often asked “where do you get your material from?” The truth is really that he tries to see the funny in everything. His mother died in March 2019, of course it was sad & grief can be tough, but he saw a lot of funny in that too.

Des also did a show about his Dad being sick back in 2010, he says: "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?” I think it’s tougher to lose your mum. My Dad was best supporting actor. My mother was the actress in a leading role. You are never ready when the star of the show dies. So this is a show about My mother. It’s a show about motherhood & sacrifice, anxiety & grief, the mistakes you make as a mother & a son and the hard road to forgiveness and it’s about loss, grief and the chaos that surrounds it. Where do I get my material from? Life and death!"
