World famous comedy group present their latest show
Founded in 1880 and counting comedy greats including John Cleese, Eric Idle, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie among its alumni, the Cambridge Footlights is a cut above your usual student comedy troupe.
In fact, the group is regarded as something of a finishing school for the cream of British comic entertainers – so you can guarantee that the pressure is on for each new crop of undergrads preparing to tread the hallowed boards. Invariably though, they more than live up to expectations, delighting audiences with their offbeat sketches, skits, stand-up and songs.
The International Tour Show is Footlights’ biggest show of the year, performed in Cambridge both at the start and finish of its international tour, which will see the students performing to over 20,000 people across two continents. This year’s offering, Dream Sequence, runs at the ADC from 13 to 24 June, with tickets to the show starting at £12.
