I’m Jen. The Mama-in-Chief here at MomCave. MomCave is a network of snarky comedies for moms, by moms. And this here is our blog. With the proliferation of mommy blogs and Pinterest-fever, moms can often feel that they’re coming up short. Being a mom is hard. We use comedy to deal with the struggles and celebrate the victories.
MomCave began when three moms and a dad noticed a lack of authentic programming for parents. Babies on TV shows sit silently. Moms on YouTube networks look like they stepped out of Real Housewives. And don’t even get us started on Pinterest Moms! We wanted to create shows about something we could really relate to–and that is the difficult and humorous moments of parenting. Because, in our opinion, those moms that seem to have it all together must be lying.
Who IS MomCave?
We started with three moms and a dad, all veterans of the entertainment industry. J. Sibley Law is the Chairman of the International Academy of Web TV and one of the first YouTube partners ever. Stephanie Faith Scott is a web series pioneer, creating one of the first ever woman-produced web series. Valisa Tate hails from the advertising world, as senior art director for agencies like BBDO and Digitas. Jennifer Weedon is the creator of several award-winning web series and is a mommy blogger for sites like ScaryMommy, Sammiches and Psych Meds, and Mamalode. And then along came Dina Drew, actress and comedy writer. Between the five of us, we have nine children (and counting) as well as five spouses, 2 cats, and a turtle.
