In 1698 Thomas d’Urfey published the smash-hit book of comic songs “Wit & Mirth”. David William Hughes sings some of them, some of his own, and some of yours which he’ll make up for you.

Thomas d’Urfey’s “Wit & Mith, or Pills to Purge Melancholy” was first published in 1698 and was so popular that it sold out every printing, and was eventually expanded to a six-volume set. This show presents the best of d’Urfey’s marvellously funny songs, newly written songs inspired by them, and freshly improvised songs based on suggestions from you, the audience.
