Krušovice Helps Paul Foot Create His Own Cabinet of Curiosities

Beer brand Krušovice and comedian Paul Foot join forces to host a wacky one-time event, celebrating Mad King Ruddy’s oddball collection.

You may know the story of King Rudolf II, or ‘Mad King Ruddy’, the klutzy royal whose mistakes are said to have led directly to the Thirty Years’ War, one of the most destructive conflicts in European history. But his legend rests on something far more curious: his Wunderkammer’ art cabinet, a collection made up of bizarre, strange and mesmerising contraptions or specimens.

In celebration of Rudolf’s birthday, Czech beer brand Krušovice has teamed up with zany comedian Paul Foot to launch a one-off gig, named Cabinet of Curiosities, at Machester’s Cottonopolis, on Wednesday 27 July.

And in true Rudolfine style, the audience will be encouraged to bring along their own inane items, from medieval instruments of torture to modern day action figures, each seeking to secure a place in Paul’s own curious collection.

No doubt Paul will feel right at home hosting such an eccentric event. His offbeat approach to comedy and quirky appearance—described by Exeunt Magazine as “a mod cocker spaniel, with the dress sense of a fashionable, middle-aged aunty”—make him the perfect choice to front the campaign.

As well as audience participation, the one-night-only Cabinet of Curiosities will also include a tasting session, with Krušovice giving the public a chance to sample their imperial lager (the gold medal winner at the 2006 World Beer Cup).
