Wit & Mirth - Thanksgiving Special

Fresh from sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Wit and Mirth returns to the Lilypad for a special Thanksgiving weekend performance. In 1698 Thomas d’Urfey published the smash-hit book of comic songs, Wit and Mirth. David William Hughes sings some of them, some of his own, and some of yours which he’ll make up for you. The 17th century has never been so funny.
