La Grange’s funniest comedy troupe.
Also La Grange’s only comedy troupe.
— Various Audience Members

The Mother Cluckers are La Grange, Illinois finest storytelling and stand-up comedy troupe. Created and Executive Produced by KT Speetzen, The Mother Cluckers is comedy for parents and those who’ve had parents. Female comics of all ages and stages perform monthly at Andersons Bookshop - La Grange, followed by an afterparty at Barrel House Social. We think it’s a real fun time, but then again we’re biased.

Co-produced by Joyce Hagen-McIntosh and Catherine Dee, The Mother Cluckers began on the Cossitt Elementary School playground after a bunch of Kindergarten Moms went to see KT perform stand-up in the city and decided “hey, we need some of that in the burbs!" Or, in Catherine’s case, being told despite her protests that she needed to write something because she was going on fourth.

Entering its third season with over 40 female Cluckers on our roster, The Cluckers are back and bigger than ever! After being featured on CBS This Morning, The Chicago Tribune, WCIU’s THE JAM, Rebellious Magazine for Women and more, we’re here to make you laugh and forget that that you have family members. We’ll see you soon, and until then #cluckyou.
