Funny Looking Kids: Comedy Club at Rheged

Bashing their way back up the M6 from their Liverpool monthly residency, Funny Looking Kids Comedy Club is returning to the Rheged Centre. With sketches, quizzes, nonsense, noise and the mighty joke competition, expect to have all ribs tickled and muscles for chuckling exercised, rigorously.

Host, master of ceremonies and very funny looking Gav Cross is eager to return.  “We had such fun when we were last here that we are overjoyed to be bringing our own brand of comedy chaos back!” But what should be expected at a Funny Looking Kids gig? “Well, we have been described by a regular as ‘grown up comedy for kids’. We aim what we do at as many people as we can. We try not to talk down to anybody, even those in the audience shorter then my 6 foot 1 inch tall, gigantic frame. We follow our rules too. – No swears – No uniforms – No peanuts – Bring jokes. We have quite an alternative twist, we think. We try to make what we do appealing for humans and higher order primates from 6 to 600 years old. Everybody is welcome!”

Rebecca Skelton, Events Manager for the Rheged Centre is thrilled! “We are so excited to welcome Funny Looking Kids back to Rheged for their face achingly funny, comedy show. The all-round interactive, family friendly show was a breath of fresh air in our event programme.” But why have the Funny Looking gang come back so soon? “Everyone was talking about it for weeks after, asking when they were making another appearance,” said Rebecca. “Well we can now finally say they are booked in for October half term. Be prepared to laugh your socks off…. Adults too!!!”

Funny Looking’s Liam Hale, psychology teacher by day and a comedian by night. “I’m so excited to come back to Rheged after our triumphant debut there earlier this year.” He added, “it’s a lovely venue and somewhere that suits our antics and has the bonus of being in the beautiful countryside of Cumbria.”

This edition of Funny Looking Kids features an appearance from surreal comedy duo, The Delightful Sausage. They’ve just finished performing their new show, Regeneration Game, at the Edinburgh Festival where it swept up a constellation of stars in their reviews, as well as being named one of ‘The best shows at the Edinburgh Festival 2018’ by The Guardian. They’ll be adding their unique blend of gag-heavy multimedia oddness to the Funny Looking fold. Sausage co-founder Chris Cantrill says, “It’s been a ridiculous amount of fun working with the Funny Looking crew. The sketches are chaotic and hilarious – fun for parents as well as the young ones.”
