A comedy troupe will deliver a history of comedy in one night at Peterborough Key Theatre on March 13.

Fresh from a critically acclaimed season at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Reduced Shakespeare Company will perform The Complete History of Comedy, touching on everything from Shakespeare to Charlie Chaplin.

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.

The show is written and directed by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor.

In their review, The British Theatre Guide said: “The trio deliver 70 minutes filled with laughter to a delighted audience.”
