Apparently, this is Brent's real mom and lest you get the impression that she hates him, from an interview she's his biggest fan.

INTERVIEWER: Did she encourage you getting into comedy?

BRENT TERHUNE: Oh, yeah. And I started a comedy when I was 16. And so I was just telling jokes as a kid in high school. And then, you know, I did my first paid week, and I even forgot that they were going to give me a check. But she's been my biggest fan. She's been to tons of shows and she carries my business cards around with her and gives them out to strangers, because that's what a normal person would do. So I guess I have a default street team and her name is mom.

INTERVIEWER: Does she mind when you do stuff about her? Or does she like it?

BRENT TERHUNE: She likes it, and I have an album coming out this year. I'm actually editing it while in quarantine, or, you know, locked down, but there's a big chunk about her and she always loves that when I talk about her.
