The Dollop

Hit American History Podcast, The Dollop will be coming to the UK this November as part of their first ever European tour.

The premise sees history buff and comedian Dave Anthony read a story to his friend and fellow comedian Gareth Reynolds, who has no idea what the topic is going to be about.

Dave Anthony started the podcast in 2014 with an idea to write up an unknown story from American history and read it to a different comedian each week. Having not heard of the story before, Dave hoped the comedian’s reaction would be hilarious.  He gave it a go with first guest Gareth Reynolds and the rest they say is well… History.  Fans flooded social media telling Dave to never change the co-host. And he didn’t.

Sticking to the formula of Dave reading Gareth a story he has never heard, The Dollop quickly shot up the charts.  Fans of both comedy and history were drawn to the wild stories and quick improv skills of Gareth.  With millions of downloads, The Dollop has become a regular presence on top of the podcast charts, as well as selling out shows in both the US and Australia. This will be the first time The Dollop comes to Europe for a hilarious live US history lesson.
