On the back of his run at the Edinburgh Fringe - a "well-nigh perfect hour of laughter" (The Telegraph) - the founder of QI, Blackadder and Spitting Image, and frontman of BBC Radio 4's Museum Of Curiosity, John Lloyd, returns to his roots as a writer-performer with a hilarious take on The Meaning of Liff and other quite interesting stuff. He "weaves a wonderfully entertaining tapestry of reflection and anecdote", says Mark Monahan on reviewing Lloyd's Edinburgh show earlier this year. Book early!

 

About Bloomsbury Theatre

Owned and part-funded by University College London, the Bloomsbury was completed in 1968 on the site of a bomb-damaged church. The years have not been kind to this style of architecture and its plate glass and dark brick front now looks drab and un-theatrical. More about Bloomsbury Theatre
