Billed as a parental night out for beleaguered moms, The Pump and Dump: A Parentally Incorrect Comedy Show comes to Chicago's Mayne Stage next month. Musician/comedian Shayna Ferm and her coach "MC Doula" (Tracey Tee) have presented two years of sold-out monthly shows in Denver.
They're now taking the show on the road to Northern California and Cleveland as well as Chicago this fall. Their album, #BREEDER, featuring songs written and performed by Shayna Ferm, is now on iTunes; and in 2014 Ferm and Tee launched a second website, TheMomToMomProject.com.
Ferm is a graduate of the theater school at DePaul University. She went to New York with a Goodman Theatre play, became a comedian and later moved to Denver with her family.
The show is "a raucous evening of comedy, inappropriate music, games, prizes, drinking, swearing and parental commiseration," including songs like "Eat Your F-ing Food" and "When I Die, I Want to Come Back as a Dad." Audience participation includes playing "Never Have I Ever" and sharing the "Most F-ed Up Thing Your Kid Did This Week."
