The annual Footlights International Tour Show 2019 will commence in Cambridge with a two-week run at the ADC Theatre from Tuesday, June 11 to Saturday, June 22.

The university's famous comedy society has aired the talents of some of the foremost British comedians and actors of the century.

Cambridge Footlights launched the careers of everyone from Monty Python's John Cleese to Olivia Colman, who this year won an Oscar for The Favourite.

Others to have cut their teeth at Footlights include Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie.

Mel Giedroyc, Sue Perkins, Peep Show stars David Mitchell and Robert Webb, and Richard Ayoade are also graduates of the group.

Look Alive! is the biggest Footlights show of the year.
