3:15pm HISTORY’S GREATEST MONSTER with Mike Shephard & Luke Connell
History’s Greatest Monster is the stand-up comedy show based on history, and we’re excited to finally be arriving in the spiritual home of English history (no, not Bexhill, we mean Hastings).
Hosted by Mike Shephard (as seen and heard on BBC Radio 4, BBC Three, talkRADIO and The Beef & Dairy Network; writer for Have I Got News For You, The News Quiz, Now Show, Lucy Porter’s Back in the Family Way & The Museum of Curiosity), and joined by extra special guest comic and Medieval expert Luke Connell (as heard on BBC Radio 4’s In Our Time).
Join us for a show that promises laughter, historical accuracy, and the tantalising possibility that we may settle the question of who really history’s greatest monster was once and for all!
