About The Event
“Funny, interactive, lively, intriguing and democratic” - Fest
“A really entertaining, funny kid’s show with loads of great audience participation to keep all ages entertained and laughing. Brehon’s Irish charm engages the children straight away” - Primary Times
Kidocracy is an interactive theatre show for children aged 6+, presented by Keith Farnan (Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow). Appearing as his alter ego, Brehon, an ancient Irish know-it-all, the show introduces children to some very simple concepts relating to politics and governing while having fun at the same time.
This is a unique and exciting show for children that aspires to show the importance of participation in a democracy, whether it be real or invented. The structure of the show is intended to involve as many of the children as possible, either in the proposing of ideas or the games that take place during the show.
The aim of Kidocracy is to encourage participation and a fearlessness when encountering issues relating to politics and law. The grown-ups have clearly made a mess of things and so Brehon offers the boys and girls a chance to rule the island of Kidocracy. In just under an hour, they must elect leaders, come up with rules that rock and deal with all sorts of crises because running the world isn’t just all fun, fun, fun, there’s stuff to be done as well.
KEITH FARNAN “Artful, satirical…with a lightness of touch and a hefty helping of roguish Celtic charm” SUNDAY TIMES Keith Farnan is a former solicitor who, before practicing in Ireland, worked as an intern in the Innocence Project New York and the Georgia Multicounty Public Defenders Office researching appeals against the death penalty. Having left law for comedy, he has since appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Montreal’s Just for Laughs, Showtime’s Live from Amsterdam as well as Money, Money, Money, his own stand-up documentary about the collapse of the Irish economy for RTE. He performs his unique shows with their mixture of satire and insight at festivals across the world. Kidocracy is his first children’s show but is very much in keeping with his previous shows bringing a sense of fun to the societal issues of the day.
