Three comedians will perform an afternoon of clean stand-up for anyone over six years old during Comedy Club 4 Kids at Worthing’s Connaught Studio on July 20.
Comedy Club 4 Kids runs like any other adult comedy club. Surrealist storyteller Matthew Highton will be the afternoon’s MC followed by time-travelling Victorian magic act Morgan and West and then BAFTA-nominated comedian Iain Stirling. The show is designed to be suitable for everyone and comes with a promise that it won’t patronise or alienate anyone in the audience.
Comedy Club 4 Kids began at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2005 and subsequently moved to London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and the Soho Theatre from where they ran workshops for children, which culminated in a stand-up show for their fellow young comedians. The show in its current guise was inspired by stand-up comedian for kids, James Campbell.
Past acts have included everyone from Phil Jupitus as Joop Joop the Panda to Stewart Lee and Ardal O’Hanlon. The comedians have come to expect heckling from the children and although the content of the shows is aimed at an audience older than six years old, it can be seen by anyone younger who is happy to concentrate for the hour of the show.
The show is at 2pm. Box office: 01903 206 206 or visit www.worthingtheatres.co.uk.
