We all love a good laugh, and stand up comedians provide us with just that. Most of the time, however, they're material is not suitable for children. That is why comedian, Tiernan Douieb set up the Comedy Kids Club. As someone who has taken twenty-five custard pies in the face for Comic Relief, he knows what appeals to children. Comedy 4 Kids is designed to provide 'cracking entertainment' for everyone over the age of six. It stars all the best comedians - just without the rude bits.
They currently have seven performances scheduled at Soho Theatre, all of which start at 12.30pm and cost £10 each.
