Vworp! Vworp! Get into the TARDIS for the latest time-travelling episode of HistComPod! This time, your hosts Olly and Elspeth welcome on board BRUCE DESSAU, the comedy critic from the Evening Standard and his own Beyond the Joke website. Together they go back to 1981 to examine a review of the Comic Strip written by Charles Spencer, and discuss the role of the comedy critic, how it has changed in the last 36 years and how comedy relates to both theatre and live music. So grab your sonic screwdriver, whistle K9 and heed the Cloister Bell, as you get ready for another intergalactic archive-based adventure!
