The Complete History of Comedy (abridged)
By The Reduced Shakespeare Company

Wednesday 4 Feb, 7.30pm
They’ve skewered history, the Bible and the world’s most celebrated playwright, now the Reduced Shakespeare Company tackles the subject it was born to reduce. From the high-brow to the low, these 90 rollicking minutes cover comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Moliere (is Moliere funny!?) to Vaudeville, Charlie Chaplin and Nick Clegg (is Nick Clegg funny!?) Tickets to the show are far more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you’ll come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness. The bad boys of abridgment leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy.

£16 (£14 conc)

Hovercraft Symphony in Gammon # Major

Friday 6 Feb, 8.00pm
Heralded by critics, Paul’s previous tours have been showered with five-star reviews and nominations, credited as ‘masterful’ and ‘ingenious’.

Don’t miss your chance to see what the Daily Express called ‘a cult classic, a relic from the past, a rare exotic bird’. Re-scheduled from Tuesday 14 October.
