LEADING NORTH WEST KIDS’ COMEDY CLUB RETURNS TO SALFORD FOLLOWING HUGE DEMAND

What's On Guide
Following sell-out Salford shows from February to July this year, the Funny Looking Kids comedy club returns to Ordsall Hall on Sunday 24th November 1.30-2.30pm.

The show, which has been running for three years in Merseyside and Cheshire, is based on grown-up alternative comedy…but for kids. The much-loved, highly-reviewed show includes silly sketches, daft jokes; sing-alongs; quizzes; prizes; weird noises, and gales of sweeping laughter.

Aimed at children aged 7-16, there are strict rules (the main one being ‘have fun’ and ‘laugh out loud’) such as no swears, no peanuts, no uniforms and…bring jokes.

Event organiser and host Gav Cross describes the show as follows;

Quote

“The best way that we can describe it as, is think Vic & Bob sharing a bag of crisps with The Mighty Boosh, whilst watching Horrible Histories on VHS! We get a lot of giggles, guffaws and chortles, from the first sketch to the final, legendary, joke competition. It’s an interactive ragtag bag of tomfoolery.”

Funny Looking Kids stars a cast of four, including some of the north-west’s best loved character comedians, performers, story tellers and mirth wranglers including Gav Cross, Lee Hithersay, Liam Hale, Alice Rowbottom and Rob Bond.

Gav Cross (who is self confessed ‘very funny looking’) created the event in 2016 for the Liverpool Comedy Festival’s Funny Looking Fringe. He is the host and ringmaster for every show, and a festival and school storyteller around the north west.

Gav continues:

Quote

"It’s all about being fresh and funny but also not being afraid to be bold and surreal. We never talk down to the children. We unashamedly want to be entertaining across the board. We want family members to enjoy it just as much as the kids. We’ve had great feedback so far from families attending our Ordsall Hall shows.”

Jennifer Holland, audience development and events manager at Ordsall Hall, said:

Quote

“We are delighted to be bringing back this very funny and unique children’s show to Ordsall Hall. The fact that this historic house has introduced kids comedy to its weekend events programme ties nicely into the Hall's past of being the scene of parties, jesters and social humour.’

Funny Looking kids at Ordsall Hall, 322 Ordsall Ln, Salford M5 3AN, tickets £5. Booking not essential.
