Gordon Southern's A Brief History of History
Join award-winning actor and comedian Gordon Southern on a riotous romp through the ages at the South Australian Museum! Armed with a few millennia’s worth of hilarious and head-scratching historical facts and a lightning-fast wit honed on the international Fringe circuit, Southern’s 56-minute deep-dive into the history of the world has sold out shows all over it (the world, that is...)
This side-splitting blend of comedy and education is the history lesson you never had at school. And probably for good reason!

"In this mildly ambitious show Southern tries to cover the complete history of civilisation, with jokes, in one hour. With a battered I-pad and some old- fashioned visual aids, Gordon Southern will hurtle through time with his unique 'poetic, clever and joyfully freewheeling' style" ★★★★ - Chortle.co.uk
"This lesson is a hell of a ride and never has learning about history been so much fun." -Stuff.co.nz
