History's Greatest Monster
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Recommended by LondonIsFunny.com. The show where comedians are challenged to ransack history for inspiration comes to Edinburgh! From medieval monks to the decline of the hat industry, anything from the past is ripe for ridicule. Hosted by Mike Shephard (writer, BBC Radio 4; talkSPORT), with regular support from David Whitney: 'the silver-tongued warrior' (Spectator), Joby Mageean: 'definitely one to watch' (ThreeWeeks), and an array of fantastic special guests. This is sure to be a stand-up show of truly historical importance. Previous guests have included Sara Pascoe, Mark Dolan and Michael Legge. It's funny, because it's true.
