Des Bishop - Mia Mamma


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

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.
