Not great for “kids” the 8pm show by EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH – AKA LMAO Off Broadway – is often perfect for teens guests. Designed with adults in mind, the shows are a true PG-13. There may be one or two words, and some adult themed comedy, but generally tame compared to many TV shows and movies teens watch today. I tell parents, if the kids are watching South Park and other edgy cable TV , they will learn nothing new watching this show. CLICK HERE for full calendar of IMPROV at the Broadway Comedy Club (AKA New York Improv Theater)
