Slow Children At Play, lovingly referred to as 'Slow Kids', is Boston University's best example
of teamwork. The group is made up of a rotating cast of Boston University undergraduates that write and perform
original sketch comedy shows each semester. Slow Kids have written and performed dozens of sold-out shows on BU's
campus, including such favorites as "Diamonds are for Breakfast", "The Space Timeshare Condominium",
"Michelangelo's David", "The Second First World War", "A Brother We Don't Really Talk About", "A Rift In Time:
Here Comes Rashmi!", "A Gleason Family Christmas" and this semester's knockout hit, "A Casualty of the
Freshness", a story of a soon-to-be casualty of the freshness who soon becomes a casualty of the freshness.
We have hosted tens upon tens of events, including comedy shows, dance marathons, and a capella festivals. We've also performed at sketch comedy festivals around the country, including:
University of Pennsylvania Comfest
Skidmore National College Comedy Festival
Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival
Brandeis Sketch Comedy Festival
Best of the Best Sketchfest (Portland, OR)
Tufts Laughs of Love Comedy Festival
We have also been recognized by professional sketch comedy groups, including Pangea 3000, Two Fun Men, Harvard Sailing Team, and The Whitest Kids U Know.
Also, some of us are single.
