Comedy 4 Kids
Red Rose Chain welcome comedian James Campbell, who pioneered the idea of stand-up for children, to The Avenue Theatre, Ipswich, 2pm, November 1. Aimed at youngsters aged six plus, their parents and anybody who likes comedy without the rude words. Expect discussions about lollipop ladies, quantum chromatic disruption machines, tartan badgers or perhaps none of that.
The former Stranglers frontman is very much his own man these days with plenty of solo material to include alongside the hits. He’s at The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, this Sunday. Read entertainment writer Wayne Savage’s interview with him in the latest Suffolk magazine.
