Christmas shows that are funny for all the family

Alice Jones, The Independent December 4th, 2014


If pantomime still does not appeal, there are a number of festive daytime comedy shows aimed at children, but sneakily suited to adults, happening this month. Comedy Club 4 Kids has stand-up sets from grown-up, high-quality acts like John Robins, Stu Goldsmith and Nish Kumar, who perform their usual sets, just without the swearing or rude bits. There are shows for the next two weekends around the south west – in London, Brighton and Surrey.

Comedy Club 4 Kids are also behind the Bloomsbury Theatre’s festive family offering this year. The Santa Claus Science Experiment (15-21 December) is written by likeable stand-up Tiernan Douieb and CBBC’s Howard Read and is billed as “an alternative panto that puts the science into Christmas”, that is suitable for 6 to 99 year olds. Comedians Rich Sandling, Bec Hill and Jo Neary are in the cast.
