This week Cariad talks to stand-up comedian, writer + TV presenter Jimmy Carr about his mum, who died of pancreatitis when Jimmy was in his twenties. Jimmy has recently written a book, Before and Laughter, about his experience of being a stand-up and how his mum's death taught him to value the present moment.
