Forget everything you know about history. The Department of Fools takes you on a wild comic journey through the past, setting the record straight. Enjoy the masked mayhem of commedia dell'arte! More…
Commedia dell'arte is the great-granddaddy of modern improv and sketch comedy. Filled with physical humor, acrobatics, song, and satire, 'A History of Servitude' is a comic survey of world history from the dawn of man to the present as told from the perspective of the underdog.
See it if if you enjoy standup/improv - this is really a series of thematically connected skits rather than a play.
Don't see it if you expect anything other than mild entertainment. Having a few drinks before the show is pretty much required to enjoy it.
