Join 'the most renowned sketch troupe of them all' (The Independent) as they embark on their annual world tour. The Cambridge Footlights’ annual Tour Show is an hourlong sketch comedy show written and performed by five of the best up-and-coming Cambridge comedians. This year, in "The Search Continues," the performers are traveling the UK to find their 6th member in the audience of one of their shows. How will they find their newest member? By showing off their best sketches, of course!
The Cambridge Footlights are the world-famous student comedy society who first aired the talents of some of the foremost British comedians and actors, including Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, and John Oliver. This is the 59th year of the Footlights’ international tour, and after débuting in Cambridge and touring the UK, the show will spend all of August at the Edinburgh Fringe and continue on to an American tour. You’d be silly to miss it.
