An absurd multimedia pelt through the history of everything

Star of UK improv sensations Racing Minds and Austentatious and one of the UK's hottest new character acts, Daniel Nils Roberts returns to Fringe World 2019 with his fiercely-anticipated third solo show.

The History of the World in 1 Hour is an absurd multimedia pelt through the history of everything, from a two-time Fringe World 'Best Comedy' nominee (2016 & 2017).

From the dawn of the universe to the present day, Daniel's on a dash to cover it all – can he cram the entirety of recorded time into just one show?

"I've set myself the challenge of finding as much fresh silliness and madness in familiar (and some decidedly less familiar) bits of history as I can," says Daniel.

"You might learn a teeny bit, but mostly you'll be subjected to a barrage of incredibly stupid pictures, videos, graphs, sounds, accents and gag after absurd gag!"

It's often said that: "History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon" and Daniel guarantees audiences will never have seen this version before!

★★★★ "There is not a predictable moment… a little Adam Riches, a little early Marcus Brigstocke and a lot sui generis. One to watch, most definitely" KATE COPSTICK, THE SCOTSMAN

★★★★ ½ "A master of strangeness... intriguing, charming and hilarious" THE WEST AUSTRALIAN

★★★★ "'Funny, clever, and unlike anything else at the Fringe'" FRINGE GURU

★★★★ "Devastatingly funny" FEST

★★★★ "Strange and wonderful" BROADWAY BABY
