We love our kids — that’s a given. But the truth is parenting can be pretty f*cked up. At the Pump and Dump show we offer laughter and commiseration so you can go back home knowing full heartedly that you are not alone. If you think your kid does crazy, messed up stuff, we promise you someone else’s kid has done way worse. And there’s the silver lining right there: we’re all in this together. You’re doing a GREAT job. This sh*t is HARD.

Every show, we ask audience members to write down — anonymously — the most f-cked up thing their kid has done recently, and then we read some of the cards on stage (and some of them we read alone in our closets weeks later when we are feeling desperate). It’s amazingly cathartic and always hilarious. Below are some favorites we’ve collected over the past two years.

Check out our list of upcoming shows and come see us some time. Next up: Comedy Works South in Denver South on Oct. 22. You will laugh your C-section scar open.
