Comedy Club 4 Kids at The Bongo Club - ★★★★

Vicki Spence, The Daily Dust August 5th, 2011


It’s just that: comedy! Funny, hilarious, silly, they’re all words to describe the Comedy Club 4 Kids!

The Comedy Club 4 Kids is a stand-up gig for children with comedians from the adult comedy circuit performing family-friendly material.

The compere Tiernan Douib is excellent, very good with children and very quick with his observational humour. He is also very silly, which has the children (and me) in fits of laughter. I was particularly impressed with his memory – he chatted with many children in the audience, asking them a few questions about where they were from, and was always able to come back to a child he’d spoken to before and remember their name and what they’d said. That was a really nice touch, and more than my memory’s capable of!

Of particular delight was his struggle with Scottish names and places, which the children roared with laughter at.

There were two acts on the bill, the first a character comedian by the name of John Roast who told a series of jokes all with a punchline rhyming with “roast”. It did gather speed and had people laughing in the end. The second act was Nick Doody who was very funny but who accidently swore twice during his act. My children didn’t notice however.

There will be different comedians throughout the Fringe taking part in the Comedy Club 4 Kids, check www.comedyclub4kids.co.uk for a list of who’s on when.

Mairi (age 7) says: “It was fun making the noises of dying animals. It was funny when this guy told us how mad his granny is.”
