Barbara Bush performs at venues across Philadelphia, and members of Barbara Bush perform in sketch and improv house teams at the Philly Improv Theater. In November 2016, Barbara Bush premiered “The Body Show” at Good Good Comedy Theatre, and they have since performed it at the 2017 Toronto Sketchfest, 2017 Women In Comedy Festival, and the Peoples Improv Theater (NYC). Barbara Bush previously performed at the 2015 Crossroads Comedy Festival and 2016 Philly Sketchfest, and members of Barbara Bush have performed at the Chicago Sketchfest, Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival, Pittsburgh Comedy Festival, and Charm City Comedy Festival.
