History Showoff is a comedy cabaret event all about the past, where a cast of historians, archaeologists, museum experts, geographers and comedians try to make sense of the olden days, and laugh at them a bit. You'll meet a cast of informative and entertaining experts ready to take you back, bringing weird and wonderful tales to life. 

Hosted by Steve Cross, comedian and Wellcome Engagement Fellow, and a man who is proud that he didn't study history past the age of 13 (which is why he's had to make friends with all these knowledgeable people).

History Showoff has previously appeared at the Bishopsgate Institute, Southwark Cathedral and British Academy. It's time for UCL!
