Mom’s Girls Gone Wild is both local and ubiquitous, silly and satirical, joyful and unafraid. It is produced, written, built, and performed entirely by female and non-binary artists that aim to show critics that women belong on the comedic stage. With songs, sketches, and movement, Mom’s Girls (Elizabeth Hicks, Stef Curran, Allison Kelly, and Andie Bulman) will take you on a fast-paced, high-energy ride. This selection contains two sketches from the live show “Mom’s Girls Gone Wild”, which took place at the LSPU Hall in St. John’s, NL in Spring 2021.

NOTE: For the show “Mom’s Girls Gone Wild” in particular, Mom’s Girls collaborated with many artists and theatre practitioners behind the scenes. The show was directly by Mallory Fisher.

Creative Bio:

Mom’s Girls is a female/non-binary sketch troupe based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. We (Allison Kelly, Andie Bulman, Elizabeth Hicks and Stef Curran) have been performing together as a troupe for three years. As individual sketch comedians, members of Mom’s Girls have performed at Toronto SketchFest, Chicago SketchFest, New York City SketchFest, Rising Tide’s Revue (yearly NL sketch comedy show running since 1981), and the Halifax Comedy Festival.

We have written and performed 7 full-length shows. Our most recent show, Hoecus Jokeus, sold out all 130 tickets in 24 hours. Our comedic style has been called: absurd, feminist, observational, sexy, relatable, and (occasionally) family-friendly. In addition to consistently writing and performing sketch, the four of us produced, wrote, and starred in a comedic children’s television show called “Tales from the Floordrobe”, which is available now on Bell FibeTV1.

While our sketches are wide in scope, Mom’s Girls has developed a brand that could be described as…wholesome dirt. Sexy fun? Politically-charged buffoonery? Feminist clown? For example, our most recent show included biting satire about government negligence toward waste management in “Ms. Frizzle at the Dump,” and then ended with a Wicked parody and a group hug. At our shows, we get laughs, we get groans, and we get high-pitched party girl “WOOOOOs!”. We’re serving CODCO meets The Babysitters Club realness.
