Des Bishop - Mia Mamma - Newry 

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

surrounds it.

Where do I get my material from?

Life and death!
