The trailer

Horrible Histories Barmy Britain Part Two is a hilarious show which has two people arguing about whether we live in Great Britain or Barmy Britain. A man and a police lady act out the history in the show. Both characters have a different opinion of our country’s ┬ápast.

A few of the funny moments were:

  • The Queen undercover, experiencing jobs. I liked it when she met the fired king/queen bottom wiper.
  • The only way is Essex with Dick Turpin.
  • Richard the Lionheart and all the animal noises – meow, baa, neigh but no roar – when he says his name.
  • The songs like Burke and Hare and the death song.

I think other people will like this show because it is funny, gory and very interesting. My dad liked it and so did my cousin (who’s 10) and uncle, which means it’s a great day out for everyone. I even thought it was funnier and more interesting than Barmy Britain Part One.

Horrible Histories: Barmy Britain Part Two is on at the Garrick Theatre in London. It is touring in lots of different venues around the country, including Norwich, Aberdeen and Llandudno from January 2014. You can find out more about the tour here.
