A highlight for children... giving them a taste of some of the biggest names in comedy with the fun, rowdy feel of a real comedy clubGuardian
Due to popular demand, Comedy Club 4 Kids! returns to Chichester with two opportunities to bring the family. Like the name says, it’s a comedy club, right, but for kids. Also any adults who enjoy a swear-free hour with the circuit’s best stand-ups and sketch acts. Non-patronising. Pure awesome.
Since 2005, Comedy Club 4 Kids! has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts to do their thing for an audience of children and their families. A decade later, the company has expanded from one London residency to being 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 heckles like 'why is that your face!?'
Line-up for Comedy Club 4 Kids! on 27 May
A great line-up for May includes classic stand-up, songs, storytelling silliness and prop-based larking about!
Tiernan’s done the comedy thing for ages and ages now. Since his early days treading the boards, his comedy has taken on a more satirical edge opting to complain about worldly political happenings in the friendliest and funniest manner possible. This is balanced by his stand-up for children and families which is mostly about bogies and superheroes. Tiernan regularly performs all over the world even though he really likes being at home. He is constantly on Twitter, co-runs the successful Comedy Club 4 Kids and has performed and written several solo shows which have all done alright really.
