Preview: Is It Comedy Or Art Or Both?

I’ve always been partial to a bit of art, I’ve always been partial to a bit of comedy and I’ve always been partial to a freebie, so Fancy Meeting You Here is right up my street. This is a free roving comedy show, hosted by Americans Dave Hill (not the one from Slade) and Carl Arnheiter, which takes audiences on idiosyncratic tours of cultural landmarks. 

Having previously presented the show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, they now come to London this weekend for two dates. They are at the British Museum on Friday and the Tate Modern on Saturday. They then head to Amsterdam and Stockholm for more shows.

They will also be joined by a number of special guest guides, including Josie Long, 2013 Foster’s Award Best Newcomer John Kearns and Tom Meeten. Prepare for your mind to be expanded. Details of the gigs are below. Please note that although the performances are free you have to send an email to [email protected] to book a place.
