Comedy Club 4 Kids - Wednesday, 26th October at 2pm

on Wed, 26/10/2022 - 2:00pm

Welcome to the Comedy Club 4 Kids! The comedy club that is suitable for all humans aged 6+ and the occasional insect or marsupial.

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 and their families… but without the rude bits! 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!?”
