FARMINGTON — We have it on good authority that Mother Nature is looking to make a Winter 2016 comeback the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the ’04 Sox. That’s why western Maine improv comedians Teachers Lounge Mafia want to prepare audiences to laugh their way through the snowfall and the mixed precip with Stale Milk & Sour Cookies 9, two nights of irreverent seasonal comedy, December 9th and 10th at 7:30 p.m. in the Mt. Blue Campus Forum. All proceeds will benefit United Way of the Tri-Valley Area.
Stale Milk & Sour Cookies 9 features Teachers Lounge Mafia’s unique brand of custom-designed comedic storytelling. Through games similar to those seen on TV’s Whose Line? and more extended scenes and sketches, TLM use audience suggestions to poke fun at everything from awkward family gatherings and never-ending photo sessions, to uncomfortable gift swaps and Black Friday meltdowns. Audiences can also expect a new edition of TLM Christmas Karaoke, twisted holiday parodies of the pop songs you know and love.
Stale Milk & Sour Cookies is more than just a tradition for TLM. It is also the group’s ninth anniversary of performing comedy together. 2016 marked another exciting year for the group with performances throughout western, eastern and central Maine, as well several improv mindset workshops with health and education conferences, sports teams and civic organizations.
Over its history, Teachers Lounge has raised funds for disaster relief, medical research, heating assistance, and other charitable causes. Once again, one hundred percent of Stale Milk & Sour Cookies 9 proceeds will go directly to United Way of the Tri-Valley Area, enabling UWTVA to better connect the organizations that provide resources, information and assistance to the people who need them throughout western Maine.
Stale Milk & Sour Cookies 9 will be held in the Mt. Blue Campus Forum, December 9th and 10th. Doors open at 7 p.m. with showtime at 7:30 p.m. The show contains mature content. Tickets are $10 and on sale now at United Way of the Tri-Valley Area offices, 232 Broadway in Farmington. Remaining tickets will be available at the door. Advance purchase highly encouraged.
