Comedy of the week: Cambridge Comedy Festival, various venues

 

With the Edinburgh Fringe gooning for attention on the periphery of every stand-up's vision, much of Cambridge's bash has comics limbering up with their new stuff.

Opening night has Tony Law and Daniel Simonsen, while Thursday features tech-savvy David Trent, zinging topical bod Andrew Maxwell, and Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans (above) – joining forces for life-affirming atheism in Joy and Wonder.

Dylan Moran and Glenn Wool lead a gala night on Friday, character comic Neil Dagley introduces his German skier Flange Krammer – and Rory McGrath and Philip Pope promise "something to offend everybody" in Bridge Over Troubled Lager.
