He added: “These are small rooms, full of adults, and stand-up shows are no place for a child. The fringe festival offers hundreds of great shows for children, some of which I’ll be seeing too. I appreciate you so much want to come to me, but I wouldn’t feel good doing material. Hope it’s okay and I can see you on a show soon. Thanks, V.”
