After their eighth sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe, the UK’s premier comedy quarter hit Cambridge
The UK’s premier improv comedy troupe is embarking on its third national tour, set to hit Cambridge Junction on 15 January. With their eighth consecutive sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe in 2015, and appearances on BBC One, ITV2, BBC Radio 1 and more, the group have good reason to rest on their laurels. Not that they have been.
Toms Houghton and Livingstone, Charlie Granville, Matt Grant and Sam Pacelli have been performing together since 2006. The general structure of their shows is built on audience suggestions, which they transform into scenes and songs live on stage with one-liners, epic tales, mad characters and “explosive physicality”. They’ve been on tour since September 2015 and will be until April this year. Having been guests in a range of venues from Radio 4’s Sketchorama to the heavy metal music festival Download they are on track for ever-greater success. Described as “comedy gold” by The Guardian and “a superior kind of chaos” by The Telegraph, they’re a must-see in the new year.
They’re on stage at 8pm on Friday 15 January; doors open 7pm. Tickets are £15.
