Comedy Club for Kids

Laugh your socks off at this fantastic show.

A comedy club, right, but for kids and any adults who enjoy a swear-free hour with some of the UK’s top comedians and sketch acts.

Nonpatronising, just pure awesome! After the comedy, there will be the chance to lark about with some silly sports games. 
Children must be accompanied by a paying adult. 

Note from Comedy Club 4 Kids
The show is aimed at children 6 years and older. Kids under this age might not understand everything - in wordplay and topics being covered - and thus get bored; followed by wiggling, sh outing and distracting.
Babies in arms are fine, it's children who have only just progressed beyond toddler stage that aren't catered for.
