The funny side of politics

Duration 4 hours
Cost Free. Donations to the museum gratefully received
From political cartoons to Spitting Image puppets – we love the funny side of politics at the PHM. Come along to a very special night where we showcase the best up and coming comedy talent.
4.00pm Politics Show Off
Warm up for the evening by coming along to our Politics Show Off – an open mic night with a twist! Performers get seven minutes to strut their stuff before the buzzer goes off. If you’d like to sign up to perform please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Slots are limited so first come first served!
6.00pm Do Not Adjust Your Stage
In this very special performance, comedy troupe Do Not Adjust Your Stage will improvise scenes and stories inspired by the People’s History Museum.
7.00pm Gráinne Maguire’s One Hour All Night Election Special
Sad there’s no big election this year? Us too. Join stand up comedian, comedy writer and columnist Gráinne Maguire as she condenses all the fun of staying up late to watch democracy in process. Expect needlessly complicated graphics, politicians dancing awkwardly and humiliated grown ups trying not to cry in public. There will be Swingometers…
Fresh from supporting Rob Delaney, you may have heard Gráinne on BBC Radio 4’s Now Show and An Idiot’s Guide. Or not. We all have busy lives.
