Comedian Stacey McGunnigle is here to learn about Sir William Ferguson, beloved Scottish surgeon, and stares aghast as we cut open and examine the world of surgery in 1800s London! You’ll hear about Robert Liston, a surgeon known more for speed than precision; the grizzly Burke & Hare murders done in the name of science; and a too-graphic account of the full surgery experience.
