The club was established back in 2003 when we put on a show in the Ritchie Hall at Longsands School in St Neots with Paul Zerdin, Russell Howard, Smug Roberts and an unknown open spot Gary Delaney!
Two months later we launched our Cambridge night at the Grad Pad, where our opening night had Gina Yashere, Steve Hughes, Rob Rouse and Steve Best. The club stayed here for 5 years until we moved to our current home at the Cambridge Junction.
Stevenage joined our roster 2 years later where our opening night launched with Micky Flanagan, Jason Manford, Tony Gerrard and John Ryan. Six years ago the club broke out of the flat lands of East Anglia and went North, where the Leadmill Comedy Club in Sheffield was established. This venue has gone from strength to strength and has hosted the likes of Eddie Izzard, Jason Manford, Sara Pascoe, John Bishop and Mark Watson and has established itself as a great club and tour show venue.
Also back in 2007 the club launched the annual Cambridge Comedy Festival which has steadily grown over the years.
Over the years numerous venues have come and gone but our original and core venues have stood the test of time and many of the biggest names in comedy have appeared at the club, including Sarah Millican, Michael McIntyre and Kevin Bridges. We always book the very best acts from UK’s prestigious comedy circuit but we also give opportunities to the best new and emerging talent, many of whom have gone on to become household names in the world of comedy.
TV comedy shows like ‘Live At The Apollo’. Michael McIntyre’s ‘Comedy Roadshow’ and ‘Mock The Week’ have taken comedy to a wider audience but they are no substitute for live comedy, which is comedy in it’s purest, raw and uncut form, couple this with the company of some friends, a few drinks to lubricate the laughing muscles and you’ve got the recipe for a great night out and possibly the best value entertainment money can buy.
