History’s boring right? It’s all about Henry VIII and the Second World War. In fact, history has a vast cast of characters that you’ve probably never heard of, or at least never gotten round to ‘googling’.
In this show comedian and writer Nick Hall lifts the lid on a treasure trove of forgotten people and fascinating stories from history - the princes and politicians, explorers and spies, actors and musicians, scientists, and inventors, sportspersons and kick-ass feminists, from around the world - each with their own claim to fame or secret to be revealed.
Ever heard about the World War Two spy with a wooden leg, the Egyptian Queen who dressed like a man, the Mexican war that started because of a pastry chef, the Indian hockey player offered a job by Hitler, the ji-jitsu suffragette, the Hollywood actress who invented Bluetooth, the Danish scientist who burst his bladder, the German Knight with the robot hand, the sword-fighting French opera singer, the geologist who ate the heat of a king, or the top hat inventor who caused a riot?
Then this is the show for you.
