Laugh Riot: Literacy From Jokes
Caution: This program is suitable only for kids and staff who love to laugh

Laugh Riot is a dynamic, ten-sessions program introducing children to the world of comedy and joke-telling as they learn and practice important literacy and public speaking skills.

A 74-page curriculum in a heavy-duty binder, Laugh Riot was written with the challenges and opportunities of the after school and camp worlds in mind. Sessions are scripted for easy implementation for beginning and veteran staff alike.

Field-tested with hundreds of children, this program is a sure-fire hit as children eagerly read jokes, perform Buddy Rounds of joke-telling, and discuss the many facets of comedy.

Then the children take it up a notch as they develop their “killer chops” by writing original materials, and performing their own original routines.

The program ends on a high note as children earn their “I’m VERY Funny” Badges of Comedy in either a Comedy Showcase or the competitive Laugh-Off.
