Three To See over Christmas and New Year – family shows: Ongals, Comedy Club For Kids, Kika’s Birthday

And our seasonal ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…

Ongals – Babbling Comedy | Soho Theatre | until 6 Jan (pictured)
A brilliantly fun show that children will love, and that grown up fans of circus and goonery will also adore, so it seems to me like a fairly perfect thing to go see at Christmas as a family. This troupe of romper-wearing Koreans won a fistful of very positive reviews at the old edfringe in the summer of 2017, with this blend of physical comedy, beatboxing and tricks. See this page here for more information and to book.

Comedy Club for Kids – Christmas Cracker! | Greenwich Theatre | 23 Dec
You might be already aware of how keen we have been for some years now on the output of Comedy Club for Kids, in which case it will be no surprise that we’d really like to go and see this festive edition. It’s got a cracking line-up, with fab regular host Tiernan Douieb accompanied the excellent Howard Read and the magical Bec Hill. Hurrah, head this way quickly to book your tickets.

Kika’s Birthday | Orange Tree Theatre | 20 Dec-6 Jan
“Kika, a little French mouse, is going to be 5 years old! Her family has planned a birthday surprise, with friends, songs and a grasshopper band. But who is that with his twitchy tail and shining eyes watching them closely? It’s the Bright Orange Cat. Will he join the party, make some new friends and share some birthday cake, or does he have something else in mind?” Acclaimed storyteller Danyah Miller tells this enchanting story for little ones, see the venue website here for details.
