In the era of mommy blogs and debates on the best ways to give birth, there isn't much space for imperfect mothers and their crazy kids. The creators of The Pump and Dump Show want to give moms a night out with parental validation!
"Laugh about the things we all have in common... parenting is messed up and ridiculous and kids can be really f-ed up sometimes." Shayna Ferm and Tracey Tee, creators of The Pump and Dump Show
The Pump and Dump Show is a one-of-a-kind, interactive, live production designed as the ultimate respite for parents everywhere. Since its conception (pardon the pun) in Denver, Colorado in 2012, this event has become wildly popular and the perfect reason for moms to gather their #BREEDER friends, celebrate a mom-to-be or treat an exhausted girlfriend to her first night out postpartum. Original music includes songs like “Parental Lovin’,” “If Daddies Made Milk,” and “Eat Your F—ing Food.” Audience members (affectionately referred to as BREEDERS) play games like "Cervix Says" and "The Most F-ed Up Thing My Kid Has Done” to win bottles of wine and other fantastic prizes from local and national sponsors.
The Pump and Dump Show is produced, written and hosted by lifelong friends and comedians Shayna Ferm and Tracey Tee who created the show in the throws of new-parenthood, feeling like moms just needed a night out and a cocktail. Their music videos, memes and online commentary have gained national and international popularity. Ferm and Tee have been featured in PEOPLE, The Today Show, Parents Magazine, on Scary Mommy, Daily Mail, Huffpost Parents, Popsugar Moms, TheBump.com, Baby Rabies and The Jenny McCarthy Show.
Take a look at some of the funniest/worst/most-mortifying mommy stories from Pump & Dump audiences:
“My daughter ripped a handful of chest hair off my husband [and] fed it to the dog. He threw up. She threw up. He ate her vomit.”
“We rang the doorbell at my sister’s house. I said, ‘Do you see her?’ My daughter said, ‘Yes, here comes the hooker.'”
“My daughter knows the tooth fairy is not real. When I did not leave [money] under the pillow, the next day she demanded more [money] than usual to not tell her little sister.”
“We discovered that our 4 year-old-son was peeing in the corners of his room at night. When we asked him why he said, ‘The penis does what it wants to.'”
“I (mom) recently broke [my] leg and was asking [my] 5-year-old daughter for help. Me: ‘Can you throw this away for me?’ 5 year old: ‘I’m pretty sure your arms aren’t broken.'”
“Pulled a piece of bacon out his mouth at lunch. We had bacon for breakfast.”
“My 6 year old told her teacher that I don’t do anything but drink wine and sleep all day.”
“My son called 911 when I was out in the yard because he thought I wasn’t coming back. The police showed up and everything.”
“My daughter asked Santa for ‘Boobs and a Butler’ last Christmas to my complete horror in front of my mom and in-laws. Awesome.”

No matter what kind of mom you are, or how well you think you have this parenting thing figured out (or not), we all have kids that do weird things. So basically, we created this show for every mom on the planet.
