Here’s some press for our shows, over the years…
""...An authentic club experience and a solid introduction to live comedy at the fringe... Every child in the room tittered, snorted and belly laughed through each act and their grownups didn’t feel left out. Plenty of asides went over the little heads, landing subtly with parents who can decide for themselves whether they want to explain their laughter.""

Comedy Club 4 Kids 4****, - ★★★★ - One4Review - 9th August 2017
""If you’re missing a comedy hit, some of the biggest comedians at the Fringe give up their time to squeeze in an extra show aimed at kids aged six-plus. In the past, folk performing strictly pre-watershed material have included Nish Kumar, Josh Widdicombe and Phil Jupitus dressed up as a panda.""

"Nish Kumar, James Acaster, Tom Allen and Bec Hill are among the big-name comics giving up an hour of their time to bring comedy to the juvenile masses; an inspired idea, this, of a nursery-slope club event, and it’s almost always of equal delight for parents too."

Edinburgh Fringe 2015 Review, - ★★★★★ - Three Weeks - 31st August 2015
"This show is a great format for introducing children to the worlds of comedy, cabaret, theatre and live music. Short enough to keep younger minds focused, varied enough to ensure there's something for everyone, and participative enough to keep the adults on their toes."

Edinburgh 10 x10 – 1. Comedy Club 4 Kids, Chortle - 22nd July 2013
""There was enough on this occasion for all to enjoy. Crucially, despite the absence of rude material, this did not feel like a watered down comedy show – the acts don’t give the feeling of having strained to come up with stuff appropriate for children. It’s a lovely, natural atmosphere and a good family afternoon out.""
