“We had so much fun with Mia as Mama in season one that we just had to bring her back for more,” said Stewart St John, creator, writer and co-composer of the Tara Tremendous franchise. “She stepped right back into the role and exceeded our expectations, delivering a hysterical, over-the-top performance as Mama! And not only did she do an excellent job as the character, but she knocked the song out of the park!”
“I’d like to extend a tremendous and resounding message of gratitude to Stewart St John, Michael Plahuta and Todd Fisher of Wonkybot Studios,” said Mia Moravis. “What great fun it is to portray Epic Mama! The dialogue is astute and hilarious, and the songwriting is spectacular. It is an honor to be among these creative geniuses.”
