Win tickets to The Complete History of Comedy, Leeds
WIN A PAIR OF TICKETS TO SEE THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF COMEDY IN LEEDS
The Reduced Shakespeare Company will be bringing their latest tour The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) to The City Varieties, Leeds on Sunday May 10, 2015.
Following a hugely successful, critically acclaimed season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, the Reduced Shakespeare Company will set out to reduce the UK to tears of laughter in 2015. Yes that’s right, the bad boys of abridgement will finally tackle the subject they were born to reduce. From the high-brow to the low, The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Shakespeare to Vaudeville and Charlie Chaplin.
The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) is far more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you’ll still come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness. From cavemen telling “Rock Rock” jokes to Chris Rock and everything in-between, the Company leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy in 90 rollicking minutes.
To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to The Complete History of Comedy on May 10, simply sign up to the Northern Soul newsletter (details of how to do this are on the right hand side of the page) and answer this question: in Robert Hamilton‘s review of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which venue did he see the production at?
