I don't mean to sound like a broken record but I am back to tell you more great things happening at the Chicago Children's Museum this summer.
The CCM presents Laugh Shack, a new pop-up comedy club running through Sept. 2. From making squirting flowers to comedy workshops to doing stand-up at the open mic on the main stage, Laugh Shack provides every member of the family an opportunity to release their inner comedian.
Laugh Shack offers kids the opportunity to both learn comedy and perform in front of their own live audience. Programs include:
- LOL 101: This semester's Sillybus calls for elementary ridiculousness. Learn a goofy walk, practice funny falls and make your own wacky wearables.
- Open Mic: Take the stage to tell a joke, sing a song or just act goofy!
- Silly Pets: Visit the Kraft Artabounds Studio, to create a silly pet and present it with a funny joke.
- "Make Me Laugh" Booth: Test your comedy skills by trying your best to make other visitors laugh.
Laugh Shack runs today through Sept. 2, 2013 (including Labor Day). Program times and dates vary, so be sure to check CCM's website calendar for more information.
