What is anything really worth? What is the value of anything?

With your help, this is what we will discover.

How it works:

  • Comedians are ‘experts’, providing unique knowledge of Lots* being sold** at auction.
  • Each Lot has a reserve price.
  • Audience members have 250ADs*** each, to bid with if persuaded.
  • Successful bidders can take home the Lot they won!

*Curiosities/Things/Bits/Bobs. **Once bid meets reserve. ***Auction Dollars

Lots sold in previous shows:

20yr old Yak jerky, a kazoo, an egg-cuber, Europe's smallest cheese-grater, a sombrero, a counterfeit £20 note, a Turin shroud, guitars, a Fenton hoody.

Your £7 ticket reserves a seat and gives you 250ADs (worth £10).
