One of Seren’s highlights of the Edinburgh Fringe was the introduction to Comedy Club 4 Kids. So good in fact she insisted that we return the following day. Comedy Club 4 Kids follows the format of three acts being introduced by a compere (also a comedian). And fortunately it’s family friendly, completely enjoyable for adults and children alike,
As a result of two shows, we’ve been introduced to The Kagools, Olaf Falafel, Noise Next Door, Stephen Halkett, Luke Rollason, Joe Mollander and Tim Fitzhigham. Seren got to do a turn on stage with The Kagools and was pleased as punch.
Whilst the acts might not suit every taste, the mix of comedy means that there should be something for everyone. Some acts seemed to appeal to the younger children, others to the older children. Some also had jokes which quite happily floated over the heads of children and straight into the minds of adults.
The great part about Comedy Club 4 Kids is that you are introduced to comedians you may not have heard or seen before. The benefit of being at the Fringe is that you can check out full shows if you want. If we had time left we would have headed to see The Kagools: Kula and The Noise Next Door’s Really, Really Good Afternoon Show (At Sea!). One piece of learning from the Edinburgh Fringe is that, at nine, Seren’s favourite shows have had comedy and improvisation included.
Comedy Club 4 Kids offers a great choice for the family to keep everyone happy. Appreciating there is consideration of the luck of the draw on the day you pick. But with two turns, and both having great content, the line-ups seem well thought through.
Comedy Club 4 Kids is at the Assembly Roxy as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. You can catch the show at 17.50 until Sunday 26th August 2018.
