They'll be promoting A Pointless History of the World on Tuesday 11th October at 8.30pm. Tickets are on sale to festival members from 31st August, and to the general public from 7th September. This event normally sells out very quickly, so I recommend you buy your tickets early.
As if you weren't already tempted, here's the event description:
Presenters, comedians and Pointless quiz masters extraordinaire Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman romp through A Pointless History of the World. They pull out some of the most pointless, hilarious and interesting events – from the obvious to the most obscure. If you have a hunger for little-known facts then this is the event for you!Sounds great, right?
