Des Bishop - Mia Mamma - Athlone
I am often asked “where do you get your material from?” The truth is really that I
try to see the funny in everything. 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.
Since death comes to us all and grief is something most of us will experience I
thought there must be plenty of people who would like that funny to be shared.
Also 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?”
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
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
Where do I get my material from?
Life and death!
