Comedy Club 4 Kids in association with Park Theatre presents
Comedy Club 4 Kids
Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups, sketch acts and cabaret stars from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children (aged 6+) and their families… but without the rude bits! Almost 20 years 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, and hosting our own Radio Nonsense podcast to bring the sillies to families all over the world.
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 the entire audience claiming to be called Bob.
Adults to sit with children in their party (and help explain anything they get stuck on).
Group bookings to contain at least one adult for every three kids.

Ada Campe (MC)
As the alter-ego to comedian and researcher Naomi Paxton, Ada Campe is the reigning winner of both the New Act of the Year at the NATYS, and the Leicester Square Theatre Old Comedian of the Year. Her performances are true variety at its best, rife with the absurd and the outlandish, mystery, magic, intrigue, and unabashed pure comedy.
“A real original and with irrepressible funny bones.. brilliantly crowd-pleasing act”- Chortle
"Fun and funny” (Diva Magazine)

"A phenomenally feel-good show" - BroadwayBaby
Andrew O'Neill is an award-winning comedian, musician and best-selling writer. A psychedelic non-binary whirlwind, they combine surrealism, polemic and good old-fashioned stagecraft to produce uniquely counter-cultural stand-up.
Andrew has performed in over a dozen different countries, at over a hundred different festivals and is equally at home in rowdy comedy clubs as performing to their own cult following. They co-wrote and starred in Radio 4’s occult sitcom Damned Andrew, and have also popped up in TV shows Good Omens 2, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, and Saxondale.
Andrew is also very capaable of ear-worming you for DAYS with their songs about buses, unfortunate faces, and Magneto on a lilo.
“No show at this year’s Fringe has made me laugh harder…a dizzyingly eclectic set” - Telegraph
“Their comedy shows are hilarious, wide-reaching affairs that have no peers” - Chortle
