We’ve rounded up the best in an all star line up of comedy this month in Cambridge
Women’s Hour, part of the WOW Festival, kicks off this month’s comedy happenings in Cambridge. Taking place on Wednesday 2 March at the Junction, this show comes our way courtesy of Sh!t Theatre, and asks what it is to be a woman, with the help of some comedy, theatre and cabaret.
The next night, the Hop & Grain Store hosts its first Comedy Club event, which kicks off a monthly series at the Regent Street pub. First on their bill is Nathan Caton, who’s appeared on Live at the Apollo, Russell Howard’s Good News and his own Radio 4 sitcom, Can’t Tell Nathan Caton Nothing. Join him for upbeat, charismatically delivered comedy on Thursday 3 March.
The following day, on the 4th, Jesterlarf Comedy Club returns to Cambridge Junction, offering a line-up that includes Andrew Maxwell, Simon King and Darren Harriett, with John Scott as compere.
Known for his role in TV’s Black Books, the cult TV series which he co-wrote and starred in alongside Bill Bailey, Irish comic Dylan Moran hits the Corn Exchange on 18 March. Having recently been sharpening his razor wit around the world in locations including Kiev, Moscow and Kazakhstan (he was also the first Western comedian to perform in St Petersburg), he’s now back on home shores with his latest show Off The Hook. The critics have gone barmy for it, with the Evening Standard describing it as “spellbinding” and The Times calling him “funny and fascinating, and utterly deserving of his place in the modern classics”.
Staying at the Corn Exchange for a bit of stand-up from another Irish comedian, Ed Byrne brings his Outside, Looking In show to Cambridge on 9 March. In it, with his usual nerd next door style, the Mock The Week regular considers parenthood, doctors and dating.
