COMIC SANS: Dead Men Tell No Jokes

What do underrepresented genders and comedy have in common? Not much to be honest. Well, not for long!!

COMIC SANS is back and it is sexennial-lier than ever!

With no scripts, no direction and no men in sight, Cambridge comedy's most frightening night returns.

After a long year, your favourite under-represented genders are back doing what they do best: being silly, comical and wildly hilarious. So ditch the library sweats, get into your best attire and head down to the ADC Theatre for a night of improv fun!

This production is recommended for ages 18 and over.

WED-THU (£7.50-£10.50), FRI-SAT (£8.50-£11)

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 


When you arrive at the ADC Theatre, there are power assisted doors to the Box Office. In the foyer there is a lift which leads up to the bar and auditorium. The accessible toilet is located on the ground floor across the foyer. Further information can be found here.
