Lolshevism September presents The Silliad

Were back! With Septembers hilarious headline improv troupe - The Silliad!

Why do geese fly south for the winter? Why does it always rain on a bank holiday? What’s really inside an Oreo? You suggest the question, and watch as the myth of its origin comes to life!

Join the stars of The Room: The Musical (★★★★ Broadway Baby), The Shambles Improvised Comedy (★★★★ TheStudent) and Present and Correct (★★★★★ Nouse) on an improvised adventure into the mythical world. Watch as your suggestions become legend in a mad mix of mayhem and mysticism with a moral or two thrown in for good measure.

From the roaring thunder of Mount Olympus to the frozen tundra of Scandinavia, it’s Horrible Histories meets Clash of the Titans meets Whose Line is it Anyway!

If you love improv and legends, this is not a show to myth!

Lolshevism is a new socialist feminist comedy club in Leeds. Founded in 2016 by people who liked Jeremy Corbyn, bell hooks and terrible puns, we aim to provide a comedy club free from misogyny, homophobia, transpobia, racism, ableism and other things from the UKIP manifesto.
