FARMINGTON — Western Maine comedians Teachers Lounge Mafia will present “Stale Milk & Sour Cookies IV,” a weekend of irreverent holiday improv, on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2-3.

For the past three years, Teachers Lounge Mafia has welcomed in the spirits of commercialism, family stress and eggnog with its own peculiar brand of improv and sketch comedy.

“Stale Milk & Sour Cookies” is more than a tradition for TLM. It marks the fourth anniversary of the founding of the group that has raised funds for disaster relief, medical research and other charitable causes.

This year, all proceeds will go to Western Maine Community Action’s LIHEAP heating program.

The improv troupes takes inspiration from “Saturday Night Live,” “Upright Citizens Brigade,” “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” “The State,” the writings of Dr. Seuss and Gene Autry as well as its own twisted comic stylings.

The show, which has mature content, will be at 7:30 p.m. in Roberts Learning Center’s Lincoln Auditorium on the University of Maine at Farmington campus. Suggested donation: $5. For more information, visit or call 578-0357.
