‘The most renowned sketch troupe of them all’ (The Independent) bring you ‘Pretty Little Panic’, their 2011 Tour. Performing to almost twenty thousand people across two continents, the Cambridge Footlights have traveled around the UK, headed up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where they played to sold-out audiences and are now taking on both coasts of America, stopping off in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia amongst other major cities. Make sure you grab a "must-have ticket" (The Times) to the show that continues to launch the biggest stars in the world of comedy.
Celebrated sketch troupe the Cambridge University Footlights has produced many of the greatest names in comedy, from Hugh Laurie, Monty Python and Sacha Baron Cohen (‘Borat’) to Douglas Adams, Stephen Fry and Peter Cook. This September, a breakthrough group of Footlights will become the first to embark on a full-blown, high-profile tour of the States since the early 1960s, taking in both the East and West Coasts.
Philly Improv Theater is thrilled to announce the footlights will play Philadelphia on Sunday, September 18, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. on The Adrienne Theatre Main Stage. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door for general admission (subject to availability). Limited standing room tickets will be available day of show at the same prices. This will be Footlights only performance within driving distance of several major metropolitan areas and tickets are expected to sell out quickly.
