Reduced Shakespeare Company - The Complete History of Comedy (Abridged)

They’ve reduced and skewered global history, the Bible itself, and the world’s most celebrated playwright. Now, RSC tackles the subject it was born to delve into: comedy through the ages. These Bad Boys of Abridgment leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of chuckles in 90 rollicking minutes: from explaining the birth of prehistoric comedy to singing about why the chicken crossed the road – and beyond! 
Adult Content; Ages 17+

“Wonderful, whimsical. The wit, verve and creativity they manage to squeeze into (the show) are a winning formula.”
