    I would not recommend this – I brought the kids last year, thinking it woudl be great – and the performers could not say one word without lots of heckling from the kids in the audience – there were very many children there with no adult supervision at all, who heckled and made nasty comments about the performance all the way through – totally spoilt it for everyone. There was no-one to discipline them – actually even some children with parents there continuously interrupted the show with rude remarks – it was disgraceful.

    Hi Eileen,

    In response to your comment, I do agree with you that a group of unruly kids ruined the atmosphere for the rest of the audience at that particular show (Ardal O’Hanlon). However, the other acts on that day and the following day were a great success. Myself and my family had a great time watching the sand man sketch of Foil, Arms and Hog (same show) and Joop Joop the Panda was very funny the next day, so much so that they are both back this year.

    Heckling is all part and parcel of a comedy show and comedians are used to dealing with “hecklers”. However the art of dealing with young hecklers is different and difficult and some acts are unprepared, as Ardal was and the show did get a bit out of hand.

    We feel it is a worthwhile endeavour to introduce stand up comedy to kids but like everything new there will be teething problem. We will try to learn from the mistakes of the past to provide a better experience for all.
    This year, we will have members of the Galway Comedy Festival team to supervise the room/audience, so that everyone can enjoy the show.
    Children will have to be accompanied and seated with Adult supervision.

    This is the 3rd year of the Comedy 4 Kids and it has been a great addition to the Festival. It is a new concept to have stand up comedians doing a show for kids and we are delighted to be able to bring these shows to the Galway Comedy Festival.

    I brought my son and two of his friends last year and we all thoroughly enjoyed the show (not the show referred to in other comments) and I’m delighted to see comedy 4 kids back again. Myself and my husband try to go to a couple of comedy shows each year and I love that I can give my son a taste of it too – without the rude bits !!!
