This JEFF RECOMMENDED show is an hilarious comedy that spoofs all those bold Victorian adventurers who ravaged foreign lands and annihilated indigenous cultures in the name of science. It’s London 1879 and the prestigious Explorers Club is in crisis: a brilliant, beautiful woman who has discovered a legendary Lost City wants to join, but letting her in might shake the very foundations of the British Empire! Grab your safety goggles for this raucous comedy gem!
