Welcome to the Earth exhibit. No touching. No flash photography.
Join five real-life human beings as they take you on a whirlwind tour of their bizarre little planet, seen from the outside for the very first time! Forget everything you think you know and learn it all again in this spectacular, sketch-shaped trip through the kinks and quirks of life on Earth.
The Cambridge Footlights International Tour Show is the biggest Footlights show of the year. This world-famous university comedy society has aired the talents of some of the foremost British comedians and actors of the century. With such a rich history, present day students find themselves amidst a lively and unique comedy scene, unlike any other in a university. So, join us for two hours of eclectic sketch comedy - an opportunity, perhaps, to watch the stars of tomorrow, today.
This year’s tour travels to London, Edinburgh, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Cambridge, and many more. Don’t miss your chance to see the latest on offer from the group that launched many of the greatest names in British comedy, including Stephen Fry, Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman, John Oliver, David Mitchell, Robert Webb, Richard Ayoade, Mel Giedroyc, Sue Perkins and John Cleese.

Notes to Editors
‘Look Alive!’ is written and performed by Jamie Bisping (Footlights Committee 2019-20), Sasha Bobak (Footlights Presents: Human Resources), Angela Channell (Footlights at the Arts Theatre), Harriet Fisher (The Footlights Pantomime 2018: The Gingerbread Man), Alex Franklin (The Footlights Spring Revue: Last Resort). The cast return to Edinburgh to represent some of the best up-and-coming comedians in the country, from the troupe that has launched the careers of many of the biggest names in British comedy. Directed by Noah Geelan and assisted by Patrick Wilson, the pair between them have directed a number of critically acclaimed Fringe shows in previous years, including Rubber (in association with Zoo Southside - a 5* sell-out 70 show run), Drifting Towers (C Aquila) and Speechless (Underbelly).
