Event Description

Laughs for the whole family! A perennial PCF favorite, the Kids Comedy Cabaret is best for children ages 5-12.  The show features interactive improv from Penny Arcade, kid-friendly stand-up from Mike Buzzelli, 11-year-old comedian Jack Rau, a creation station from The Mattress Factory, and improvised sing-alongs with Missy Moreno! Plus, this show is pay-what-you-wish!

Featured Acts:

Penny Arcade

Penny Arcade is an improv comedy show designed for kids 5–12 years old & fun for the entire family. Draw, write, and craft at our Collaboration Stations. Watch the Penny Players bring those ideas to life with a fun, 45-minute comedy show — you could even get on stage! Stick around and learn a few games to play at home. Every show is different!

Mike Buzzelli

Mike Buzzelli is a stand up comedian and published author. He is a theater and arts critic for ‘Burgh Vivant, Pittsburgh’s online cultural talk magazine, and an active board member of the Pittsburgh New Works Festival, the Carnegie Arts Initiative and the Carnegie Screenwriters. His book, “Below Average Genius” is a collection of essays culled from his weekly humor column here in the Observer-Reporter.

The Mattress Factory

The Mattress Factory is a catalyst for connecting viewers to the creative practice of living artists and to the ideas and cultural expressions of our time. During its innovative history, the Mattress Factory has provided museum visitors with new ways for thinking about and experiencing art.

Jack Rau

Born in Maui, Hawaii, and raised on the West Coast, 11 year-old Jack Rau is destined to make the world laugh. Jack currently lives in Pittsburgh (where his parents Kelli and David grew up) and has a knack for comedy, singing, art and music. At the age of 8, his natural talent for performing landed him a lead role in a short film Imagination Snow by Alex Rodia, then at 10, he was casted in a commercial campaign for UPMC. When he’s not playing soccer or performing with the Pittsburgh Youth Chorus, you can find him telling jokes and pulling funny pranks on friends and family. With the ability to emulate his favorite comedians like Sebastian Maniscalco and Jim Gaffigan, Jack Rau has no fear when it comes to an impromptu performance of his favorites.
