Kids 'N Comedy, New York's leading presenter of young comic talent, will present "The Philosphy Show," a one-of-a-kind show of original standup material by teenage comedians, January 29 at Gotham Comedy Club, 208 West 23rd Street. What better way to deal with the confusion of adolescence than by weighing Hegel against Kierkegaard? The teen comics will crack books to prepare for this show. (We hope they applied the same zeal to their midterms.) To prove that nobody's better to ponder life's mysteries than a bunch of puberty-stricken teenagers, Leo Frampton, Val Bodurtha, Lee Wolfowitz, Eric Kurn, Zach Rosenfeld and others will grapple with the meaning of life. Kids 'N Comedy presents monthly shows at Gotham Comedy Club with a turntable of talented teens and 'tweens from the tri-state area. In the company's shows, each comic performs his/her own material, which is screened to be free of profanity and abrasive or cheap "low" humor (like fart jokes). They do, however, venture into edgy comic terrain: politics, getting old, even death. Laura Weiss wrote in Big Apple Parent, "This kid humor is quirky and often slightly mordant, with a sophistication that belies the comedians' youth. Plus, these kids are hilarious." The show is at 1:00 PM; the reservations number is 212-877-6115 and online ticketing is available on the Kids 'N Comedy website,

Venue Description: Voted top-rated comedy club by the Daily News and best comedy club in NYC by NY Press. Emerged as NY's premier comedy venue. Legends like Jerry Seinfeld are known to drop in on this upscale yet intimate setting.
