COMEDIAN Stephen K Amos hit the big time with his own TV show … and his biggest fan is his mum.The BBC 2 show offered her a chance to see her son imitating her for part of a sketch. “Bar the glasses, there’s a very strong similarity,” Stephen chuckles. “I’ve heightened her to a caricatured level but it’s very much based on her looks and personality.” He says his Nigerian mother Buki still nags him as if he were a child, which inspired the sketch. “We’ve all got mums who say, ‘Come over for Christmas’ or, ‘Have you been eating?’ We all look at that character and see our own mums.”
