Join the Reduced Shakespeare Company at the Queen’s Theatre on Tuesday, May 12.

Expect short sharp laughs as the Reduced Shakespeare Company return to Barnstaple with their new show on Tuesday, May 12.

The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) will take audiences on a whirlwind gag tour as it covers comedy through the ages, from Aristophanes and Shakespeare to Vaudeville and Charlie Chaplin.

The experience is far more affordable than tickets to an amusement park, but you'll still come away with the same feeling of nausea and motion sickness.

From cavemen telling 'rock rock' jokes to Chris Rock and everything in-between, the company leaves no joke untold as they deconstruct the entire history of comedy in 90 rollicking minutes.

The trio will be taking to the stage from 7.30pm.
