Kids N’ Comedy


Put on a happy face at Kids ‘N Comedy, a school for young, aspiring stand-up comics. Held at the Gotham Comedy Club, the organization’s monthly workshops and shows guide 8-16 year olds with writing, editing, and delivering their own quirky routines. The classes are taught by experienced comedians and teacher who provide the students with insight into how to express their unique world views. Talent scouts also take notice. Celebrities like Josh Peck of Nickelodeon’s “Drake and Josh” had their beginnings at Kids ‘N Comedy. “The classes are an evolution,” says President Jo Ann Grossman. “If the kid’s got [something] in them to develop, then they should do it.” Note to teachers: Next time you hear snickers in the back of the classroom, think about sending that clown to comedy school instead of detention!
