Comedians to give fake academic talks at Grosvenor Museum
Back for a fourth outing – by popular demand – comedians will once again become curators and give illuminating talks on some of the fascinating objects in Chester’s Grosvenor Museum.
The catch? It’s all a lie – they’ve never seen any of the slides before, have no idea what most of the objects are and will be making it all up on the spot, with hilarious results.
‘Carry on Curating’ takes place on Wednesday 19th February and will once again be hosted by Chester comedian Danny McLoughlin.
A regular performer at the UK’s biggest comedy clubs, Danny has supported big name numerous acts on tour including Sarah Millican and Sean Lock.
Past lectures have been inventive and surreal, testing the comics’ powers of improvisation to the absolute limits.
It’s the perfect mix of culture and comedy – where practically no regard whatsoever is given to the truth behind the significant historical objects being shown.
The event runs from 7.30pm until 9pm on Wednesday 19th February in the lecture theatre at the Grosvenor Museum. Expect adult language.
Tickets cost £10, which includes a glass of wine or a soft drink.
These are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/westcheshiremuseums or on the door.
