My friend invited us to watch her son perform at the Joy Children's Theater. The place is such a wonderful setting for kids to watch comedic improvs, just good, clean fun for the entire family. My husband I and thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. I was so impressed by the kids' performances. They were so confident and funny.

Joy Theater is a terrific home to improv and comedy in the NoHo Arts district. The improv shows performed by kids are spectacular. There is a class and show for kids under 12 ("Giggle Gaggle") and also a teen improv class and show ("Detention Span") every Saturday & Sunday. Sunday mornings they have an improv show for all ages called "Sunday Funnies." And there is adult comedy and improv too. Josh Minnick and Janiece Jary are the directors/ringleaders for this zany bunch of clever creative performers. Don't miss this show!

This is an ideal place to take the kids as an alternative the usual movie fare. Live theater in a professional yet friendly and casual setting performed by peers is a great way to get kids interested in new art forms! They also offer classes for kids who are interested in performing. The directors are hilarious and interact with the kids in the performances. Check it out! You won't be disappointed!

These teachers are amazing. There all kinds of classes, afterschool and Saturday and Sunday classes for kids and teens. The classes are two hours long. They are followed by the kids doing a show. The classes are a combination of improv and sketch. The kids learn a lot and have fun. The teachers, - Janiece and Josh perform with the kids. If you have a shy child or an outgoing child, this is a great place for them to be. I love the kids groups. I adoore the teen groups. When you are between 12 and 16 there do not seem to be a lot of opportunities to create something fun with friends. This is the place to do it.

One Fun Filled Action Packed hour of Sketch, Improv and Stand-up comedy (Two if you attend both shows)!!!! Even though it's a kids/teen show, adults will enjoy it just as much.

PROS: A wonderful way to spend the weekend with your family.
CONS: None

I thoroughly enjoyed the children's theater, and just recently watched an adult comedy show last Wednesday night, which was refreshing in that you could bring the kids and not worry about them hearing things they shouldn't hear. But also, it was very funny, and very original. Proves that things can be good clean fun and still hilarious. It just takes more talent, which this theater group has an ample supply of. The songs and skits were all written by the cast, and it was a very enjoyable evening for my whole family.

PROS: Great cast, good material, kid friendly
CONS: Can't think of anything bad to say about it.

My daughter takes classes with Josh and Janiece, and we really enjoy it. For a reasonable price, she gets two hours of comedy and improv training, and then takes part in an hour-long show every week. Even the little ones can participate in the shows (after a few weeks of training and when they are ready), and Janiece and Josh fill in and add humor and encouragement when needed. The kids prepare their own standup routines, sketches, and monologues, with polishing assistance from Josh and Janiece, and then present these in the shows. The classes and shows really help the kids gain confidence and become more skilled and comfortable performing in front of others. It also helps them develop spontaneity. The shows are great fun, too. I highly recommend the classes and the shows!

Both of my kids are involved in the Sat Improv groups. My son in Giggle Gaggle and my daughter in Detention Span. It has increased their confidence and they love going every week. And the shows really are funny. I would recommend going to see one of the shows even if you don't have any kids this age. I guarantee laughs.

I went to an open house of the Joy Theater. My feeling is that if you would like your child to have a wonderfully good time while having a truly professional preforming experience, this is the place to enroll them. I recommend checking out one of the 'Giggle Gaggle' or 'Detention Span' shows some week-end! I think the first thing you will be impressed by is the interaction between Josh, Janeice and the students. Josh and Janeice's genuine enjoyment of the kids and their work with them is hard to miss. Add to that, the shows are really funny! If I had children the right age for these classes, they are just the sort of teachers I would want them to learn from.

Message from Joy Theatre

Unlike any other kids comedy show in town, our kids and teens perform at your command as in Whose Line is it Anyway?, have written their own original comedy material a la Saturday Night Live, and are stand up comics with their own original jokes. Casts and comedy varies every week, so you'll never see the same show. Your laughs fuel their fire, confidence, and of course, "JOY"!
