COMEDY CLUB 4 KIDS 2019 (Ages 6+)

Saturday 16 February at 2pm

Tickets - £8, family of four - £28 (this offer will apply automatically in your basket)

 

Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children (aged 6+) and their families… but without the rude bits! A decade later, the company has expanded from one London residency tobeing countrywide, running shows and workshops all over the UK from Peebles to Portsmouth, even producing a book on how to write and perform stand-up. The show is family friendly, but without any patronising idiocy. In fact, it's just like a normal comedy club, but it's on in the day, kids are allowed in, and thus there is a higher than usual chance of the entire audience claiming to becalled Bob.

"An essential treat." - Fest Magazine

 

"Absolutely hilarious." - The Yorkshire Times

 

"The ethos is just right" - The Daily Telegraph
