Among the eccentrics at this year’s Cambridge Comedy Festival will be George Egg and his Anarchist DIY Chef show. He combines cooking and comedy to make a three course meal using power tools, office equipment and hair dressing appliances.

The festival will be at Cambridge Junction from Wednesday, July 18 to Saturday, July 21.

The big names include Josh Widdicombe, Milton Jones, Lee Nelson and Henning Wehn.

Rising stars include the next big thing in Scottish comedy Christopher MacArthur-Boyd who is following in the footsteps of Kevin Bridges and New York sensation Sara Barron whose filthy, fun and incisive comedy has shades of Joan Rivers.

Satirical maestro and star of The Mash Report, Geoff Norcott presents an original comedy voice. He has already appeared on Live at the Apollo and writes for Sarah Millican.
