Three women seasoned in laughter and motherhood bring audiences a perfect moms’ night out at HT@MTC
Based in Los Angeles, the mommas of The BreakWomb are veterans of some of the most well-known comedy shows and movies, and they have become breakout YouTube stars with daily videos targeted towards mothers who need a laugh. These hilarious women will bring their joy, parental comedy, and audience-inspired improv to Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 7:30 PM.
“Getting eyeballs on anything you create online is a huge hurdle for actors today,” wrote one critic in a review of the troupe’s show in Motherhood in Hollywood. “The moms of The BreakWomb are leaping over that hurdle. They bill themselves as moms who do sketch comedy, or comedians who do motherhood. Any way you pitch it, they've struck gold."
The women have appeared in numerous shows and films including Arrested Development, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Bridesmaids, and This is 40, but most importantly, they’ve spent hundreds of nights walking the floor and changing diapers.
“My sides almost split the first time I watched one of these ladies’ videos. I can’t wait to share their humor with other Midlands mommas,” says Kristin Cobb, Executive Director of HT@MTC. “Their stories are relatable, and the audience is in for a real treat.”
