Penn’s Mask and Wig Club is an all-male comedy troupe that has entertained Philadelphians and the Penn community since 1889 with its original revues, often featuring men dressed up as women.

At the time of Mask and Wig’s founding, most colleges were open only to men, so the troupe’s cast was all male. Due to the popularity of burlesque during that era, the club adopted the genre.
