Now Here's a Funny Story!

"A jaunty romp through the history of the golden age of Music Hall, often delving into its dark underbelly.

Experienced music hall artists, Tommy Parsons and Airlie Scott take you on a musical journey from the very beginnings of music hall through to its 1890s heyday with the likes of Marie Lloyd and Champagne Charlie, onto wartime jingoism and the cross-dressing Vesta Tilley of the Great War. Not just drunken toffs, risque? sexuality, homelessness, decadence and war casualties across the Empire... but plenty of booze and sing along songs as well!

Winner of The Offcut Festival Short Play Award ‘Inspiring musical’

‘Excellent entertainment with appeal for everyone....amusing, touching, rowdy’
- Max Miller Appreciation Society

‘a decidedly upbeat....whistlestop singalong history tour...’
- Edinburgh Fringe Review"
