Sand Dancing: Egypt in British Comedy
Petrie Museum |
DMS Watson Building
Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Ticketed and Pre-booking essential
The sand dance as performed by Wilson, Keppel and Betty is almost as famous in Britain as the pyramids themselves. Used by later comedians, such as Morecombe and Wise, the image of fez-wearing, skinny-legged English men dancing in sequence in front of an Ancient Egyptian background have amused audiences since the 1930s. Robert Ross, author of The Carry On Story, The Goodies Rule O.K. and many others, will invite us to laugh at this comedy classic and its legacy in British comedy.
Doors open at 6pm, talk starts at 6.30pm.
Part of the Bloomsbury Festival.
