DETAILS AND ARTIST INFO:
Kids 'N Comedy, New York's leading presenter of young comic talent, will
conclude its 2011-2012 season with "The Horrible History Show"
on May 20 at Gotham Comedy Club, 208 West 23rd Street. Charles I
of England sent someone else to marry his wife for him. Ancient gladiators
were mostly vegetarians. Attila the Hun bled to death from a nosebleed
on his wedding night. This show is devoted to the lighter side of
history and features Angela Citrola, Daniel Laitman, Jake Sidransky, Andrew
Vatier, David Thompson, Zach Rosenfeld and Ryan Drum. The first five
are graduating from high school and will go on to college in the fall;
this is their last show.
Kids 'N Comedy presents monthly shows at Gotham Comedy Club with a turntable
of talented teens and 'tweens from the tri-state area. In the company's
shows, each comic performs his/her own material, which is screened to be
free of profanity and abrasive or cheap "low" humor (like fart
jokes). They do, however, venture into edgy comic terrain: politics,
getting old, even death. Laura Weiss wrote in Big Apple Parent, "This
kid humor is quirky and often slightly mordant, with a sophistication that
belies the comedians' youth. Plus, these kids are hilarious."The
show is at 1:00 PM; the reservations number is 212-877-6115 and online
ticketing is available on the Kids 'N Comedy website, http://www.kidsncomedy.com.
