Gordon Southern: A Brief History of History

He was a bit of a nerd at school and he's delighted to inform you he's had a relapse. In this fast paced, hilariously wonky history lecture he TRIES to tell the entire history of the world in 56 minutes, with jokes, and no omissions* 

Think "Q.I" meets "Horrible Histories", with music, slide shows and a wonky tie.  Last performed in 2014 receiving best comedy nominations in Edinburgh, Perth and NZ.

"This lesson is a hell of a ride and never has learning about history been so much fun."

"Southern presents a breezy, bright and exuberant show that zips along, utterly engaging the audience and educating them in a wonderful and manic hour of comedy."

"This is an awe inspiring hour of historical hysteria...a comedy festival gem!"  Keeping up with the Grid
