The 4th Annual Boston Comedy Arts Festival will begin with an appearance by one of the most famous comedy groups in the world. The festival will begin with two performances from the famed Cambridge Footlights. The shows will kick off the festival on Tuesday, September 4 at 7:30 p.m. and at 9:30 p.m. at ImprovBoston. Tickets cost $25 and $20 with a valid student ID. The festival runs through September 9 at ImprovBoston and The Brattle Theatre.
The festival kicks off with a double header of performances from the world famous Cambridge Footlights. With 129 years of experience, the Footlights have launched the careers of a long list of internationally-renowned comedic talents, including household names like John Cleese (Monty Python), Hugh Laurie (House) and Emma Thompson (Love Actually) while continuing to nurture exciting new performers like Mitchell and Webb (Peep Show) and Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat).
“We're thrilled to have the Cambridge Footlights kick off this year's festival. Having a group of that caliber and tradition come in to Boston helps set the tone for the entire festival,” said Boston Comedy Arts Festival Producer Jeremiah Jordon. “Beginning with a group of their caliber only highlights our incredibly solid line-up with acts from all over the country. It's a great way to see a wide variety of styles, formats, and talent all in one hilarious weekend.”
