Cambridge sect

Judging by the comedy graduation success of the Cambridge sect, the next Mark Watson or Stephen Fry may well be among the folk on stage, but they’re as difficult to spot as a funny sketch. Still, the cast’s occasional efforts to swallow their own giggles at least means someone is having a good time. If only they’d keep to their initial promise of not showing up for the show (a prank no one fell for), an hour would have been saved from all our lives.

Sketch comedy from the Cambridge group, whose efforts to swallow their own giggles only make it all the more obvious that no one else is laughing. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2007'.
