We’ve rounded up the best in an all star line up of comedy this month in Cambridge
It’s a great month for comedy in Cambridge, kicking off with Stewart Lee at the Corn Exchange on the 2nd. A Room With A Stew sees the comic return to Cambridge to try out new material ahead of his next series of BBC2’s Comedy Vehicle, in a show that sees him ‘more skilful and playful than ever’, according to The Guardian.
He’s followed on the 4th by Isy Suttie over at Cambridge Junction. You might well recognise her as geeky girlfriend Dobby in Peep Show, but she’s also a fantastically funny stand-up (have a look on YouTube), with a charmingly offbeat take on life and lots of quirky songs to share. In her new show The Actual One (based on her book of the same name), she’s lamenting the point in life at which all her mates have grown up without her and she’ll do pretty much anything to avoid farmer’s markets, nappies and mortgages…
Next up, on 12 February, catch bona fide comedy legends Reeves & Mortimer at the Corn Exchange. 25 Years of Reeves and Mortimer: The Poignant Moments, is the first time Vic and Bob have been on the road since 1995, and offers a hilarious celebration of their best bits as a duo. Expect music, magic, dancing and lots of laughs.
Rounding things off on 26 February will be the latest instalment of the Corn Exchange’s Comedy Live series, this month featuring award-winning comedian, writer and broadcaster, Jarlath Regan. He’ll be joined by sharp stand-up Alex Smith, along with Hayley Ellis, who’ll be compèring the evening. The Comedy Live events offer a cabaret-style set up, with food and drink available on the ‘Grub & Glug’ menu – so make a night of it!
