Luna Discovers Random Humor Comedy Routine

Luna Discovers Randomness in Comedy.

From November 4, 2017 comedy showcase from our Times Square NYC fall classes. EMAIL us for more info about shows, classes and more.

Our students develop these routines all by themselves. We help direct our kids and teens to better performances and give them some basic structure. We help find better ways to tell a story. We sometimes step in to say a certain idea/claim is factually incorrect, because the young mind has not been exposed to certain truths yet.  But sometimes you just have to let the mind of this 10 year old go. I also tell our students if what you do is funny – if it works – EVERY rule can be broken. The best artist redefine the rules for their own work and generation. Only a egomaniac of a teacher stands in the way of progress and creativity for the sake of technique (too many of those in acting as is).

TEEN STAND UP COMEDY SHOWCASE – Christian and Video Games

Comedy Kids

AMAZING stand-up routine in which Christian has hit bottom with his addiction – Video Games.

From November 4, 2017 comedy showcase from our Times Square NYC fall classes, this amazing stand-up performance by Christian shows the ills of playing too many video games. Christian has previously been a student of our kids’ classes for 23 years. At age 13 he is already a star among our teens. At this rate we expect Christian – and a few of his classmates – may join the ranks of 3 former students now performing shows with our professional cast. Another student has already booked his first TV gig at age 13.  EMAIL us for more info about shows, classes and more. See both shows (kids and teens programs) from Nov 4 in full CLICK HERE

That’s right the pilot episode of THE COMEDY KIDS is now online at www.thecomedykids.com. The show features amazingly talented kids and teens from New York City performing Improv Comedy in front of a live audience.

What makes this series so unique is the imagination of the young performers. While seasoned adult performers may have tons more performance training and life experience, a child’s mind is free to wander without the confines created by society, ego and insecurity.

This project has been the dream of Producer Laurice Fattal for years.  Along with show host, Walt Frasier, the two founded Improv 4 Kids in 2009, which has performed for 1000s of K-12 and family audiences at their Times Square club, schools, camps and community centers.

“I used to fear performing for kids,” explains Frasier previously not known as a ‘clean comic’, “but we soon learned that a child has a far more interesting imagination. Interactive scenes for adult club audiences always had the same predictable direction. Kids’ minds surprise you at every turn.”

When the troupe started offering classes in 2010, the idea for this show was immediate. Everything Laurice and Walt had witnessed performing for kids was multiplied when the kids took stage themselves.

“Some of these students have been with us for 5 or more years, taking classes, attending summer camp and even performing as guests with the professional troupe,” Says Fattal. “Their progression has been a clear path to this project.”

While the series is designed for all ages, young audiences love watching other kids play. All the jokes are made up on the spot by the performers.

The kids are watching comedy and humor they can relate to.

“I have seen twelve-year olds perform the best Improv scenes you have ever seen,” brags Frasier. “Adult performers try to be existential and in the moment. Kids are usually there naturally.” Walt Frasier, Liz Lord and other Improv 4 Kids teachers combine both Improv and Stand-Up Comedy. Some of the students, after years of weekly classes, comedy camps and live showcases, have 15-20 minutes of quality original stand-up comedy materiel.

Many of these kids are getting the attention of other producers, casting directors and agents. 13yo Ethan Harkavy appeared on NETFLIX’s “Master of None” Season 2. 12yo Judah Angert was invited for a private producer’s audition original Stand-Up Comedy on America’s Got Talent Season 12. Many are starting to connect with agents and casting directors, so keep your eyes open for amazing things in the future. Fattal gets emails and calls to see talent almost weekly.

Tune into www.thecomedykids.com regularly to see new episodes and feature clips from kids and teens performing Improv and Stand-Up comedy.
