With kids, from our experience, we always preferred giving our audience ‘a night off’ from the everyday responsibility of parenting, and to be honest, its lot more work for our team to be mindful for the one rare show where kids are present. Having said that, no matter what show we are doing, we aren’t saying anything that your kids aren’t saying at school when it comes to the content of the show.
The times it has worked best is when all the kids are on the one table (usually after the first 20 minutes they have given up playing and are looking at their ipads anyway). They do make for great entertainment when they get up for the air guitar competition. Down side is, it makes it a bit awkward for any grown ups to want to go up and compete with them.
So if organised accordingly it can definately be suitable for children where there are a lot children grouped together for a good night around the table for some Bingo fun. Plus we are always wanting to promote the next generation of Bogans. The only situation that doesn’t work is having children mixed in with adults. Not only does it make it hard for our performers to read and interact with the audience, some people don’t want to laugh at certain jokes or participate in the cheeky, silliness whilst 10 year old kids are on their table.
Somehow, it just gets weird.
