Cambridge Comedy Festival
To celebrate its tenth year, the Cambridge Comedy Festival is moving to the picturesque Jesus Green park 20th - 24th July. The Jesterlarf Comedy Club Marquee will be hosting shows with big name headliners each night. The Cambridge Junction ‘Edinburgh Preview’ Tent and The Cambridge Edition ‘Fringe’ Tent will be hosting a star studded program packed with Edinburgh Comedy Award winners and the hottest emerging talent enroute to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Plus some fantastic kids shows…
The Cambridge Comedy Festival was launched in 2007 with the aim of recreating a micro version of the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival experience in Cambridge. Its unique appeal is that it is a Festival of Previews and brings a host of names known and unknown to the city for a pre-Edinburgh warm-up. Audiences get the rare opportunity to see some of the biggest names in comedy and finest emerging talent in an intimate venue as they hone their shows for Edinburgh and beyond.
Cambridge is not a city that needs to worry about its place on the comedy map. Given the array of talent it’s fostered over the years from Peter Cook plus Eric Idle and John Cleese of Monty Python, through to Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson and present day stars David Mitchell, Robert Webb, Olivia Coleman, Sandi Toksvig, Sue Perkins, Jimmy Carr, Simon Bird and Tim Key. Therefore, at festival HQ we’ have done our best to continue this grand tradition of hilarious comedic brilliance.
