The Atkinson, Southport, launches Comedy Club 4 Kids

Comedy is always a big pull for The Atkinson and this May they are starting a Comedy Club 4 Kids – which they are aiming will be a great way for all the family to have a laugh together.

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 (aged 6+) and their families… but without the rude bits!

A decade later, the company has expanded from one London residency to being countrywide, running shows and workshops all over the UK from Peebles to Portsmouth, even producing a book on how to write and perform stand-up.

The show is family friendly, but without any patronising idiocy. In fact, 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!?”

Comedy Club 4Kids takes place at The Atkinson on Saturday, May 27 at 2.30 pm.

Comedy Club 4 Kids will be back at Christmas with Comedy Club 4 Kids Christmas Cracker on December 16.
