The Complete History of Comedy (abridged)


The Reduced Shakespeare Company has condensed nearly every other major cultural behemoth -- the Bard, baseball, Hollywood, the Bible and America -- for its whiplash theatrical productions. The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) is the group's freshly hatched show, which combines a chronological examination of chortle-worthy endeavors from the Stone Age through yesterday with a heavy splash of tongue-in-cheek indulgence. Crammed into the 90-minute exploration of what makes people laugh are refreshers of Q&A jokes, Vaudeville and modern standup.
