Hello and welcome to The Penny Dreadfuls' website and blog. This summer we're delighted to bring you two unique comedy shows: Aeneas Faversham, a Victorian sketch comedy show at the Smirnoff Underbelly and ShamWagon, a late-night improv show at The Pleasance Courtyard.

Throughout the next six weeks, we'll be bringing you news, reviews and general anachronistic frippery from both shows. Come back often for news of the special guests who will be joining the ShamWagon team throughout the fringe for late-night comedy, as well as special treats direct from the warm embrace of Mr Faversham himself.
