Lent Week 7
Roll up! Roll up! Cirque De L’Extraordinaire is a marvel for all to see; a sketch show set in a circus!
Sam, Theo, Jordan and Guy are four sketch writers who have spent years training and dreaming. Now, in an attempt to broaden their horizons, they endeavour to accomplish the most daring and audacious extravaganza Cambridge has ever seen.
But can they really create and perform in their own circus? No! At the last minute they back out and resort to doing an hour of sketch comedy, but the circus performers aren’t happy. As they say in the circus, ‘the show must go on!’
Clare Actors present a new hour of comedy and circus from the team that have collectively brought you Pelican, Dystopia: The Musical, STIFF! (The Footlights Harry Porter Prize WInner 2014), Amygdala Wonderland, Sunset Eternal, The Double, The Canon, Female Personality of the Year, Hear Hear, Tamburlaine the Great, Bafflesmash, Who Am I?, Jolly Good, Beauty Spots, Laughing Fitz, numerous Footlights smokers, and many more.
Varsity - "Highly original and truly hilarious"
The Tab - "The epitome of bizarre hilarity and joyous absurdity"
