History Showoff is a comedy cabaret event all about the past, where a cast of historians, archaeologists, museum folk and comedians try to make sense of the olden days
And laugh at them a bit. You'll meet a cast of informatiive and entertaining experts ready to take you into London's history, bringing weird and wonderful tales to life. History Showoff comes from the mind of Steve Cross, comedian and Wellcome Trust Engagement Fellow, and possibly Britain's nerdiest standup comedian*.
*he's genuinely too lazy to work out if this is true.
History Showoff is finally south of the Thames! Not very far south of the Thames admittedly, but one small step at a time.
Join an incredible lineup of historians, comedians, religious figures and experts for a night of hilarious stories of religious history and history of London.
