"I thought it would be fun to bring in cool talent to the kids shows, like people in the entertainment industry youngsters never get to see because they are on the late night talk shows," Rayner said. "There are no talk shows where kids see people who create the things they like."
Rayner has also been placed in charge of enrollment for the Flappers University, which offers classes for those hoping to follow a career in comedy. A couple weeks after the comedy club opens, classes will start that are designed to help beginners become more comfortable on stage and allow those who have a routine to work on it on stage, he said.
The grand opening shows on Sept. 9 and the "Two Milk Minimum" show on Sept. 11 are fundraisers for the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank. The club has a comedy club where the youngsters write and perform their own comedy material, said Shanna Warren, chief executive officer. After a board member saw the Flappers Comedy Club was coming to Burbank, club officials thought it would be great to partner with them, Warren said.
