tx    Monday 25 August 2014    SKY1   

50 Ways to Kill Your Mammy sees an Irish mammy and her thrill seeking son embark on a series of extraordinary adventures across locations including Africa, Asia and the USA.

 

Each episode will see Nancy and Baz Ashmawy (How Low Can You Go) set sail on a journey designed by Baz to test his Mammy’s mettle.

 

Nancy is a 70 year old pensioner and for the last ten years has watched Baz gallivanting around the world throwing himself into all manner of extreme situations, all in the name of entertaining the nation. Until now Nancy has been a proud mother, and an occasionally worried bystander, but just recently she’s got the itch, an insatiable urge to grab life by the horns and try a few new experiences on for size.

 

Baz knows exactly where Nancy’s limits are and has planned trips across the globe that will gently take Nancy to those limits, slowly inching her past them each week, as far as she can go. From sky diving to alligator wrangling, taking viewers on a unique adventure, experiencing the endearing relationship between a brave Irish mammy and her daredevil only son.
