Following capacity crowds and rave reviews from NYC to Edinburgh, Peter Michael Marino’s "Show Up, Kids!” returns to The Complex Hollywood for seven performances from April 4-12, 2020. This interactive, semi-improvised family show for kids 3-10 years old puts a wildly comedic, theatrical twist on the traditional kids’ show. When the main attraction doesn’t show up, Pete enlists the help of the kids to provide prompts and control everything from plot to props, characters to costumes, and settings to sound in a one-of-a-kind, 60-minute laughfest. By Peter Michael Marino & the kids. Directed by Michole Biancosino & the kids. Music by Michael Andrew

Marino immediately connects with the kids (and the adults, too!), and holds the audience entranced, carefully navigating a controlled chaos of awkward silences, silly bits (what he does with a juice box is fantastic), appropriately childish humor, and music.

Any child who wants to giggle, shout out suggestions, get on the stage and help with the script, props and set decoration will love it. Marino shows again that he knows how to adapt the format and his performance, plus how to judge an audience.

There are a million reasons why this show is not like any other show you have been to. Usually the kids are just watching things happen, but here kids are actually a part of the show! Peter Michael Marino definitely has a superpower, that's for sure – he can make a funny, fabulous show out of anything that's thrown at him!

Marino knows how to keep the pace fast enough to hold the young audience’s attention while still squeezing in hilarious quips and scenarios, even throwing in a few jokes for the adults. His frenetic physical style is perfectly-suited to this demographic as he bounds around the room, throws props around and leaps onto table tops to keep everyone enthralled.
