Alyssa Limperis knows what your mom will tell you this Mother’s Day (and every other day, too)

All of us have a mom, and if you’re lucky to still talk to yours this Mother’s Day, then Alyssa Limperis knows what she’ll tell you.

Limperis, a sketch performer with Maude team The Gift at the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City, and one of two head comedy writers and comedic actresses for Condé Nast Entertainment’s “The Scene/Iris,” was one of the 100 or so women selected last November for YouTube’s Women in Comedy Program.


Her series about her mom has broken out as a viral hit across Twitter and Facebook this past week. Limperis’s latest installment, “Mom When I Visit Home,” has racked up 987,000 views via Twitter and about 37,000 more views via Facebook.

Here it is, brand new to YouTube:

Limperis shared some insider news this morning, writing on Twitter: “Happy mothers day to my incredible, resilient & beautiful mom. I feel so lucky to have her & she FILMS all these!! We lost my dad 2 years ago & holidays since have been tough so thanks for all your kind comments about my mom- I’ve read them all to her & it’s made her so happy”


Since you may already have seen this one, you’ll be glad to know there’s already more where that came from.
