Kid Comics Get Grown-Up Laughs At One Comedy Club

NEW YORK (January 12, 2013)--Children are getting grown-up laughs at a comedy club in New York City where homework, parents and the awkwardness of adolescence rule the routines.

Kids 'N Comedy, a 17-year-old troupe of children ages 9 to 18, showcases a clean version of a sometimes-crude craft.

The group drew its biggest crowd yet, 300 people, at a Manhattan performance last month at Gotham Comedy Club.

Young comedian Eric Kurn says some youngsters see a rock star or athlete and want to be like them, but he sees comedians and wants to try making people laugh.

The Long Island 16-year-old says the comedy shows give him that chance.

Group founder Jo Ann Grossman says the children learn to perform clean acts that rely on wit rather than four-letter words.
