Penn's Premier all-female musical sketch comedy troupe
Bloomers was the first female performing arts group in the Ivy League, and the first female collegiate comedy group in the country when it got started in 1978. Almost 40 years later, Bloomers is stronger than everwith an incredible undergraduate and alumnae base of strong, funny women. From shows each semester at Penn, to yearly tours to NYC, to our brand-new women in comedy festival, LaughtHERfest, our troupe stays dedicated to making people laugh!

Bloomers is growing, and we need your support!
As we continue to grow, Bloomers needs support beyond the $3000 we get from the Student Activities Council every year. That just about covers costs for our shows on campus. But we want to expand our off-campus tours as well as LaughtHERfest. Can you help? We know we can't achieve all of the items below in a year, but with your support we hope to be able to work toward these goals!

Some items that donations will help to fund include:
  • Larger Tour Venues ($5000)
  • West Coast Tours ($20,000)
  • Making Tour Affordable for all Bloomers ($1000)
  • Microphones for Bloomers ($4000)
  • LaughtHERfest Talent ($20,000)
  • Helping student groups attend LaughtHERfest ($1000)
  • Promoting LaughtHERfest ($500)

So proud of Mia! Who would've thought that all of your sarcastic antics would land you in comedy writing. Congrats and keep up the good work. --MR. G--Mia's Coach
Can't wait to see the show on October 20th! First time back to Penn in a long time... --Dr. Elissa Brill Pashkin
XOXO Give 'em TIT! --Marisa Brau
Extremely proud to see how this has grown since LaughtHERfest was just a kernel of an idea to bring amazing comedians who happen to be women center stage. No more line-ups where 1 out of every 10 performers is a woman. Keep filling stages, panels + the rooms in Platt with your brilliant, sharp + poignant voices, and give 'em tit! --Ms. Laura Petro
Delighted to be a LaughtHERfest patron from year 1 and on the panel year 2! Keep on cracking jokes and breaking ceilings! And if you want a laugh, check this out: with love, Linda --Linda Falcao, Esq.
