Rob Oldham & Great British Mysteries WIP

  • The FA's Comedy Room 51 Camden Park Road London, England, NW1 9BH United Kingdom (map)


DOORS: 19:25


RUNTIME: Approx 1hr


Rob Oldham is going to do an hour of stand-up. There are no two ways about it.

At Edinburgh this year he bagged the Amused Moose Breakthrough Act Award with his ‘quirky, offbeat sensibilities that distil into smart jokes that rarely sound like anyone else’s’ (Chortle).

This show looks at the political and the personal, and how one gets in the way of the other. Rob considers how nostalgia and memory colour the things we do, and how we switch between habit and novelty in our search of what makes us happy.

Rob Oldham is an exciting young comic with ‘Diamond ability’ (Broadway Baby).

Great British Mysteries

Do you like mysteries? Do you like historical inaccuracies? Do you know the difference between Thomas More and Roger Moore? Read on!

This is the follow-up to the company’s sold out 2017 Edinburgh show. But set 400 years earlier. Confused? You will be.

In this edition, mystery-hunters Olive and Teddy become embroiled with witches, haunted houses, and the scent of Cardinal Wolsey’s conscience. It’s like ‘The Woman In Black’ meets Keystage Two Tudor history. 

Expect multi-roling, homemade sound effects and more gags than Henry VIII had wives. Seven?
