Eggbox Comedy posted: "Perfect for taking your mind off impending exams" - Varsity, 4 stars. http://www.varsity.co.uk/theatre/10141 "Strange Bedfellows is certainly, delightfully strange, taking a joyful, slightly absurd, constantly punning skip through that most depressing of documents, the newspaper." - Cambridge Theatre Review, 4 stars. - http://cambridgetheatrereview.com/r/VxvW2pxETsKkfxtoXDx6yg Great reviews for Strange Bedfellows so far, get down to the Corpus Playroom at 9:30 tonight to see for yourselves!

Eggbox Comedy posted: HELP SWITCH GET TO THE FRINGE! Here is our Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eggbox/switch-heads-to-the-fringe And here's what you'll get if you donate to us: FOR £1 - Riss Obolensky will dedicate a Snapchat to you. Expect great filters. FOR £3 - We will write you a short poem of thanks. It'll be the only way we'll ever make money off something we've written, so we'd really appreciate it. FOR £5 - Declan will make you a personalised mixtape with some banging tunes on it. FOR £10 - We will write you a sonnet of thanks. We can't promise it'll be as good as Shakespeare though we'll make sure it rhymes. FOR £15 - Lily's mum will knit you a vegetable of your choice. That's right. Knitted vegetables. FOR £20 - For only £20, we will include your name in the show itself. FOR £25 - We will write a sketch for you on whatever you want. Prompt ideas: dead parrots, four candles. FOR £30 - We'll email you a video of our happy, grateful faces, and gush about how much this means to us. Go on, get cracking. FOR £35 - We will write and record a song especially for you. It'll probably be about how beautiful and philanthropic you are, you lovely thing. FOR £40 - We will print off and frame a picture of you and place it on the mantelpiece in our Edinburgh flat.

Eggbox Comedy posted: All of us at Eggbox are thrilled to announce that we will be taking ‘SWITCH’ to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer. After a sell out run in Cambridge, we can’t wait to begin preparing for our next venture in Edinburgh. You can catch us everyday at 14:55, on Underbelly’s Buttercup stage. Just keep an eye out for the giant upside-down purple cow, we won’t be far away. We are honoured to be working with such a prestigious venue, and it is the support of our audiences thus far that has made this possible. In order to deliver our show to the big bad world, we will be doing all that we can to raise funds, as well as funding a large proportion of it ourselves. However, we still need a little assistance. Please take a look at our Kickstarter page to find out more about us, the show, and what you can do to help. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eggbox/switch-heads-to-the-fringe

Eggbox Comedy posted: Our first show of the term is 'Strange Bedfellows'. It's a new sketch show by Sam Knights and Jack Needham that is as incongruous and micro-managed as its subject matter. Expect big laughs, fast-paced comedy, and a whole lot of fun. Previous credits include: ‘Switch’ (★★★★★ - Varsity), ‘Farewell Tim’ (★★★★★ - CTR), and ‘Footlights Presents: Xylophone’ (★★★★★ - The Tab).

4th April 2016 4:22pm


Eggbox Comedy posted: Next term we present three brand new shows... • Strange Bedfellows 26th - 30th April (Corpus Playroom) A new sketch show from double-act Sam Knights and Jack Needham. Painfully real and joyfully absurd, Strange Bedfellows is as incongruous and micro-managed as its subject matter. Expect big laughs, fast-paced comedy, and a whole lot of fun. • Verbal Remedies: A Stand-up Show 7th June (ADC Theatre) An hour of stand-up comedy from the people who brought you the five-star shows 'Switch: A Sketch Show', 'Farewell Tim', and 'Footlights Presents: Xylophone'. Some say it'll be great. • Vox Pop: A Sketch Show 7th-9th June (Corpus Playroom) Entirely written and performed by freshers this sketch show uses "vox pops" as its central theme. It is sure to bring something new to the Cambridge comedy scene and is certainly not to be missed.
