Georgia Southern’s Performing Arts Center presents “The Reduced History of Comedy (abridged)” on Sept. 26

The Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Georgia Southern University is excited to present the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s performance of “The Complete History of Comedy (abridged)” on Saturday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 pm.

The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a three-man comedy troupe that leads the audience through 105 minutes of fast, funny, and physical sketches exploring what makes us laugh, including wordplay, music, improv and everyone’s new favorite comedy bit, the top ten list. Called “the Bad Boys of Abridgment,” they have performed the world over, including off-Broadway and at the White House, the Kennedy Center and London’s West End.

Their performance of “The Complete History of Comedy (abridged)” has been called “a non-stop laugh fest” by critics. While covering comedy through the ages from the Greek master of laughs – Aristophanes, to Shakespeare, the era of vaudeville, Charlie Chaplin, and “The Daily Show,” the play answers important fundamental questions such as “why, in fact, did the chicken cross the road?”

Tickets may be purchased through the PAC Box Office by phone (478-7999) or in person (847 Plant Drive), Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets also are available for purchase online at by clicking the eTix logo.
