"Welcome to the Museum of Everything; feel free to wander round our many galleries and experience the history of everything. Children are welcome, but please keep them in the bags provided."

The critically acclaimed comedy sketch show written and performed by Danny Robins, Dan Tetsell and Marcus Brigstocke - the team behind BBC 2's We Are History. Based on their successful Edinburgh Festival show, it's a sketch show in disguise; themed around the world of museums, galleries, guided tours, stately homes, historical re-enactors and obsessive collectors and set in the vaguely mystical and apparently infinite environs of
The Museum of Everything.

"Please don't touch the exhibits. You don't know where they've been."

Our guides are a pair of long-suffering underpaid West Country museum attendants, who pop up to remind us of museum rules, announce forthcoming attractions and reassure us that it's never far to the promised land of the gift shop, where you can buy leather bookmarks, novelty pencil sharpeners and fudge in the shape of Jane Austen.

The Museum of Everything taps into people's experiences of visits to museums as well as the popular fascination with history that the team have already successfully explored in the critically acclaimed We Are History and Radio 4's 2000 Years of Radio.

Danny Robins and Dan Tetsell have written and created the two series Paperback Hell for Radio 4 as well as writing for The Hudson & Pepperdine Show, Dead Ringers and, for Radio 2, Parsons & Naylor's Pull Out Sections. For television, they have worked on BBC 1's The Basil Brush Show, Channel 4's Gash and have just completed working on According to Bex for BBC 1.

Marcus Brigstocke has written and performed Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off, The Now Show and Risking Everything for Radio 4. On screen, he is currently presenting BBC 4's new satirical show, The Late Edition.
