Sometimes we also have 5 minute guest spots from the children from our Comedy Academy 4 Kids. Comedy website Chortle put us at #1 in their 2013 Edinburgh Festival comedy show recommendations for kids, saying: This is probably the daddy of them all. The kids’ show that almost a decade ago challenged the big and brash primary-colour clowning of most kids’shows to present proper circuit comics, but without the rude bits. And it turns out a lot of the acts took to it like a duck to water, revelling in the constraints and the unpredictability of heckles like: ‘Why is that your face?’.  The idea behind the show came from stand-up comedian for kids, James Campbell.His gamble paid off and performers who never usually go near children had them and their parents in stitches. And kids, who might have otherwise only seen twee shows which focused on the alphabet and how to count, found themselves watching proper stand-up comedians doing proper stand-up comedy, just for them. The idea with the show is that it is suitable for everyone, children and parents and anyone else who's in there; it will not patronise or alienate anyone. Kids younger than 6 are allowed in to watch the show, but they may not understand all of it; the comics will be pitching their material - in terms offrames of reference, words used, etc. - at kids of 6+.
