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! (Des Bishop)
