Kids 'N Comedy, New York's leading presenter of young comic talent, will present the "When We Were Young Show" on April 22 at Gotham Comedy Club, 208 West 23rd Street. It's a theme show in which teenage comics long for a simpler time. Who said you had to wait till you were old to start complaining about change? Angela Citrola, Joe O'Hare, Zach Rosenfeld, David Thompson and others will adopt the perspective of their parents and grandparents, riffing about what was good enough in the old days, which for these kids might have been before the iPhone or Lady Gaga and or when Newt Gingrich was still a Southern Baptist.
Kids 'N Comedy presents monthly shows at Gotham Comedy Club with a turntable of talented teens and 'tweens from the tri-state area. In the company's shows, each comic performs his/her own material, which is screened to be free of profanity and abrasive or cheap "low" humor (like fart jokes). They do, however, venture into edgy comic terrain: politics, getting old, even death. Laura Weiss wrote in Big Apple Parent, "This kid humor is quirky and often slightly mordant, with a sophistication that belies the comedians' youth. Plus, these kids are hilarious."
