Comedians to give spoof curatorial talks at the Museum
7 March 2018Comedians from up and down the country will become professors and deliver their humorous take on a ‘TED’ talk, commenting on some of the exhibits in the Grosvenor Museum and filling you in on what they actually are. The catch? They have never seen any of the slides before and will be making it up on the spot.
‘Carry on Curating’ on Friday 16 March will be hosted by Chester comedian Danny McLoughlin, who has regularly performed at the UK’s biggest comedy clubs and whose bold delivery and innate sense of humour has seen him support numerous acts on tour including Sarah Millican and Sean Lock.
Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member Communities and Wellbeing said: “Danny is the perfect person to MC for this mix of culture and comedy. It’ll be like a cross between ‘Time Team’ and ‘Who’s Line is it Anyway’ and promises to be an excellent night.”
The event runs from 7.30pm to 9pm on Friday 16 March in the Lecture Theatre at the Grosvenor Museum. Tickets are £10, which includes a glass of wine or a soft drink. Tickets are available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/westcheshiremuseums or on the door on the night. Admission to the Grosvenor Museum is free.
