The power of laughter is strong... especially within our kids. Bring your own little heroes along to this action-packed series of live comedy shows and let them unleash their mighty giggles in this fun-filled event.
Stand-Up For Kids is a family-friendly, interactive show featuring awesome local and international Festival comedians bringing their stand-up, physical comedy and magic to the stage for your four to eight year olds to get a bit silly. With our powers combined, this is set to be a riotous event reminding us adults that laughter rules the Universe.
Australian Gaulier-trained dynamo and professional idiot Tessa Williams will host the first show on Sat 6 May at 3pm, she knows how to have the kids in stitches, bringing her dance, clown, and sketch talents over from her ridiculous genre-busting Melbourne festival show, Over Promises.
No stranger to the imaginative world of kids, Chris Parker had such a good time hosting Stand Up For Kids last year that he’s back to host the show on Sat 13 May at 3pm. He’s also starring in shows for the adults in D.O.C.ing and SNORT.
