Sex, Romance & Nudity
A few standup routines contain some very mild innuendo that will go over kids' heads. Some outfits are form fitting, but not in a sexual context.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Big Stage is a family-friendly, non-competitive talent show featuring all sorts of acts, ranging from traditional dance routines to more unusual performances. Despite the occasional and very mild risqué comment offered by comedians (which will go over kids' heads), there's nothing to worry about here. However, viewers of all ages should be reminded to never try some of the more dangerous acts on their own.
Is It Any Good?
Act after act, this entertaining series is reminiscent of the old vaudeville shows of once upon a time. The performers, some of whom have won awards or received media attention, enjoy performing in front of an energetic crowd while receiving national exposure. Meanwhile, they're good enough to keep audiences entertained, despite the lack of drama created by celebrity judges and the promise of money and fame. Ultimately, The Big Stage is a lively series designed to focus on, and celebrate, the talent being featured.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
