The Mothers Comedy Group at Trustus Theatre

Friday, April 21 @ 8:00 pm


Made up of graduates of improv comedy training programs in New York, Chicago, Clemson University, the University of South Carolina, and other institutions across the nation, The Mothers Comedy Group makes their home in Trustus Theatre in downtown Columbia, South Carolina. Now in their seventh season, The Mothers have sketch and improv shows, as well as commerce series and recurring events at the Richland Library. Their dedication to community-focused comedy has borne results: the group was awarded the inaugural “Best Local Comedy or Improv Group” in August 2020 from readers of Columbia’s long-running weekly paper, The Free Times and has won every year since. COVID moved their work online, resulting in three digital sketch shows and multiple individual sketches, all available on their YouTube channel.

The Mothers have been featured twice at the New South Comedy Festival, as well as appearing at Girls Block, First Thursday, Tapp’s, and the Columbia Museum of Art. You can contact them at [email protected]
