Des’s show is now scheduled for Thursday 31st March. Tickets on sale now!

Des Bishop's new comedy show, Mia Mamma, is inspired by the 'star' of his life, his mother, who died in March 2019.

I am often asked “Where do you get your material from?” The truth is 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, 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?
