A fun, friendly family version 'Comedians Against Humanity'

Presented by Carrie Hardie for Serious Comedy
Comedians Against Humanity (FAMILY EDITION) from the master mind of Comedians Against Humanity, Yianni Agisilaou has taken his hugely popular show and put a G rated twist on it. Having removed all the naughty cards from the deck and enlisting the help of two comedians, Tash York (Badass) and David Ellis (Shit-Faced Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream), audience members are given 2 cards each.
As Yianni sets up the story for the comedians to respond to, the audience are asked for suggestions from their cards to fill in the blanks. The first game was great; it was funny, the card suggestions were funny and it was all going well. However, as the games go on the same answers became slightly tedious and this level of interaction has the ability for the children to take over quite quickly and cause the show to go off the rails a little, relying on some adult interaction to even it back out.
Tash and David were great and really embraced the stories and games even when you could see they were finding it difficult. This show is great for the pre-teen audience and is a lot of fun based on the level of interaction. I would have liked a few more cards just to maybe get rid of the repeat feature of the answers and to give everyone a better chance of being able to participate, but apart from that it was a great show.
