Thur 20th July - Cambridge Edition Tent - Dave Johns & Tom Lucy
What happens to a stand-up comic when he's plucked from the comedy circuit by master film maker Ken Loach and cast in the title role of one of the most acclaimed and talked about British films in the last 25 years? 'I, Daniel Blake' became a beacon for social realism and, for Dave Johns, a rollercoaster ride of red carpet surrealism. From Cannes to the BAFTAs, meeting Woody Allen in the lift of Intercontinental Hotel Cannes and accepting acting awards alongside Hollywood’s greatest … he was there, wide-eyed. Through it all.
“Shifting from hilarity to uproar to genius in the blink of an eye” The Guardian
One of the youngest and most exciting new professional comedians in the UK. Having won virtually every new act award in the last 18 months, Tom is now ripping it up at clubs all across the country and has been supporting Jack Whitehall on his sold out UK arena tour. You’ll need to catch this young talent while you can and before he blossoms into a super star.
Fri 21st July - Jesterlarf Comedy Club Tent - Seann Walsh, Kerry Godliman, Jake Lambert, Kevin McCarthy
Live At The Apollo star and observational king-slacker Seann Walsh spots the absurdity in everything and converts it into a sidesplitting yarn. He’s been dubbed as the finest observational comic of his generation – come and see why! Support comes from Kerry Godliman with her straight talking and unpretentious razor sharp quick wit. This phenomenally talented and criminally underrated act is without a doubt one of the best comediennes in the country. She is also a fine actress having starred in Derek, Extra’s and Spoons and Jack Dee’s new comedy Bad Move. Plus rising and English Comedian of the Year finalist Jake Lambert with great story telling style full of hilarious tales of self-deprecation and social awkwardness. Compere for the show is the playful, daft and indescribable Kevin McCarthy!cambridge live - buy ticketscambridge junction - buy tickets

Headliner Henning Wehn has spent more than a decade in Britain, the German Comedy Ambassador has ‘groan’ to like puns.... though he still couldn't eat a whole one! Expect a crash course and diplomatic master class in personal accountability, wonderment at the foibles of British society and have a right old laugh at the same time! Wunderbar! Support comes from Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and Mock The Week regular Zoe Lyons with her delightful quick fire, razor sharp observational gags plus Irish hip hop freestyler Abandoman who’s supported Ed Sheeran on his UK tour and was the house band for Alan Carr’s Chatty Man TV show.
