Comedy Club 4 Kids (Brett Vincent for Get Comedy)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Lots of poos, wees and bums – nothing rude, then. A cuddly compère chats happily to the children about various exploits: hunting the crown jewels, being undercover and playing football with oranges. There are different acts for every show, and at this one we were offered the beat-boxing delights of Shlomo – who got the kids quacking and squeaking on stage – and Fringe favourites Big Howard And Little Howard, a hilarious comedy duo, part man part animated 6-year-old. The format is fast, fun and the kids seem to love having their own chance at the adult version. Definitely one for the diary – not least as future acts include the likes of Stephen K Amos and Rich Hall – however, though it’s a definite hit with older children, it may not be so entertaining for the under 6s.

The Bongo Club, 3 – 28 Aug, 5.30pm (6.30pm), £6.00 – £10.00, fpp20.
