Getting a joke can take ages
APOPULAR theatre company will give a 90 minute lesson on the history of comedy when it comes to a Bucks theatre next week.
They have skewered history, the Bible and the world’s most celebrated playwright, and now the Reduced Shakespeare Company tackles the subject it was born to reduce.
The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) will be performed at The Elgiva, in St Mary’s Way, on Tuesday.
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 this year.
Tickets to The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) are far more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you will come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness.
From the high-brow to the low and everything in-between, the bad boys of abridgment leave no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy in 90 rollicking minutes.
Tickets cost £16 (full) and £14 (conc). To book call the theatre’s box office on 01494 582 900 or visit www.elgiva.com.
