Comedy Club 4 Kids - Udderbelly

Comedy Club 4 Kids - Udderbelly

Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children (aged 6+) and their families… but without the rude bits! A decade later, the company has expanded from one London residency to being countrywide, running shows and workshops all over the UK from Peebles to Portsmouth, even producing a book on how to write and perform stand-up. The show is family friendly, but without any patronising idiocy. In fact, it's just like a normal comedy club, but it's on in the day, kids are allowed in, and thus there is a higher than usual chance of the entire audience claiming to be called Bob.

Festival of the Spoken Nerd - Udderbelly

Festival of the Spoken Nerd - Udderbelly

Festival of the Spoken Nerd return to Underbelly Festival a new version of their latest show, You Can’t Polish a Nerd. Using science, songs and spherical geometry, the trio go in search of jokes that other shows dare not.*

Since their last UK tour, experiments maestro Steve Mould, geek songstress Helen Arney and stand-up mathematician Matt Parker have featured on BB2’s QI, created a genuinely “experimental” comedy show for BBC Radio 4 and played the Hammersmith Apollo with Robin Ince and Professor Brian Cox.

Don’t miss this ‘resplendently geeky trio’ (The Times) as they put the “oooh” into zoology, the “fun” into fundamental theorem of calculus and the “recursion” into recursion in the ultimate show for nerds. And non-nerds.
