Knock, knock… who’s there? Talbot Mentors Kids Comedy Camp


Talbot Mentors have bought former stars of The Second City and current stars of The Comedy Arcade in Pittsburgh to run a comedy camp for Middle and Elementary School kids in Easton. 20 students have been lucky enough to be trained in the art of improvisation. Improvisation is not just for future comedians. The kids gain confidence in navigating challenges, public speaking, critical thinking, and working as a team, all while laughing and of course having fun.

The Prager Family Auditorium has provided the perfect space for our aspiring actors, class clowns and thoughtful observers. The Comedy Camp has run August 14 – 17 and will culminate with two performances by the students for their families to show off their new improvisation skills.

Talbot Mentors aims to enrich the lives of youth in Talbot County by pairing together local youth with caring adult Mentors. Currently there are 110 kids in the Talbot Mentors Family, and we hope to make this 120 by the end of 2017, and 200 by 2020.
