Western Civilisation - The Complete Musical - Abridged


Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor & Nick Graham & Dee Ryan

2 Male 1 Female

"In some ways, it's their funniest presentation yet ... the three performers "turn history inside out and upside down, cramming 1,000 facts into 90 minutes". By the end they have given us a nonsensical but hilarious rendition of each major epoch" - Andrew Warshaw, The Guardian

"Singing that "history ain't what it used to be" the three-person ensemble put a deranged spin on the events of the past 1,000 years ... Mixing broad physical humor with sly satire, the three sang, disco-danced and adopted phony accents and even phonier facial hair to view the highlights (and low points) of history, from Leif Ericsson to the Y2K bug ... The show was consistently hilarious" - Donna Freedman, Anchorage Daily News

"The show, overall, is a riot... Don't miss it. After all, a comedy this funny only comes along once or twice a millennium." Patrick Meighan, New Hampshire Telegraph
