Let’s start with what’s geared toward our kiddos:
Improv for Kids!

This high-energy class for ages 8-13 will introduce youngsters to the basics of improv comedy. Kids will learn how to play basic improv games, think on their feet, and work together to create scenes from a suggestion. This special one-day introductory workshop will be taught by Sara Cravens, a character actress, improvisor, and comedy writer trained by The Groundlings. This class is a three hour class and the fee is $49. (LINK)

Now, on to the adults. This festival has something for everyone. I was glancing over the schedule and I’m not joking, they have sessions titled, “Parks & Wrecks,” “Jokes For Jews,” “Psychic Stand-Up,” Hawaii 5-Bro,” “Ladies of Laughter” and something I’m looking forward to, “The Real Housewives of Comedy,” featuring a friend and fellow BurbankMom, Mary Gallagher.
