Stand-up for kids
Age Recommendation: 6+ | Running time: 1 hour
Hold onto your socks, take the banana out of your ears and enjoy the best comedy for kids from the man who invented it. James Campbell presents a stand-up comedy show for children over 6, their parents and anyone who likes comedy without the rude words.
James finds The Funny Things about everything including pets, couscous, spaniels, making your own yoghurt, bees, why we have hair and will answer questions such as, ‘do sausage dogs eat sausages? Or do they just look at them and say, “I’m not eating that – it looks like my grannie?!”
