Family Friendly Comedy Shows in Orlando Will Tickle Your Funny Bone
have been to any live shows featuring stand-up comics recently you will know that most comedians get their laughs with jokes that are off-color and definitely not suitable for children. Orlando vacation-goers however can take the whole family to two destinations that offer clean, high quality humor on a nightly basis.
The first of these destinations is the SAK Comedy Lab. It is a 200 seat improvisational comedy theater in downtown Orlando. In addition to presenting shows, SAK is a training school for up and coming comedians and runs a SAK University with four levels of comic training.
How good are the SAK shows? Some young visitors who have been through all the attractions of Orlando, including Disney World, Sea World, Universal and the indoor sky diving at Sky Ventures, put SAK Comedy Lab as their number one or two attractions. It is that good!
There are a number of different shows running at SAK but the main one is Duel of Fools which is a “high energy improv competition” with audience judges. Seasonal variations of this show are called Yule for Fools (Christmas) and Love for Fools (Valentine’s Day). In addition to the main show, you can also see shows put on by the students and interns of the SAK Comedy Lab.
Famous “graduates” from SAK include: Wayne Brady, Dee Bradley Baker, Karey Kirkpatrick and Jonathan Mangum. All of them were members of the ensemble prior to going on to careers elsewhere.
One of the best features of the SAK Comedy Lab is that it is reasonably priced. Admission for Duel of Fools is only $15 and refreshments are also inexpensive as well. Parking is between $8-10. This is an alcohol free venue and definitely suited for the whole family.
SAK Comedy Lab is located at 380 W. Amelia Street Orlando, FL 32801 First floor of Centroplex II Parking Garage and you can call them at 407-648-0001.
Another great family-friendly comedy hub in Orlando is the Outta Control Dinner Show. The main comedian, Tony Brent, is a magician and he gets the audience involved in his truly amazing tricks.
It’s difficult to eat when you are laughing so hard, but you will want to try it here because they serve you unlimited amounts of very good pizza and supplement it with tossed salad, popcorn, beer, wine, soda and desserts.
In addition to being family-friendly, Outta Control is very reasonably priced with adult tickets selling for $24.95 and tickets for kids and seniors are $16.95. If you have a group of 8 or more you can also book a birthday party or hold other group or corporate events there.
Outta Control Dinner Show is part of the WonderWorks fantasy attraction and is located at 9067 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819 . While walk in visitors are allowed, it is better to reserve for the dinner show by calling (401) 351-8800
