Heckling, at an adult comedy gig, can be poisonously disruptive. At our Comedy Club 4 Kids gigs, it is often bonkers, and one of the things that makes playing to children both unnerving for the acts, and a delight. Provided the kids aren’t wounding with their words. At a book reading, comic and author David O’Doherty was once hit by a heckle of “Does this get good soon?” Happily, most of the ones fielded at our shows aren’t quite so painful. I should know, I was once told “You look like a duck” by a 6-year-old.
