Jenny talks to the ladies behind this year's Cambridge Footlights performance, as they attempt to follow in the footsteps of Fry & Laurie, Monty Python and Pete & Dud.

We hear from The Volcano Physical Theatre company about their production of Love, a deconstructed interpretation of Shakespeare's Sonnets.

There's sketch comedy from Pecka and Strongbow and puppetry from the Avenue Q production.

Jenny discusses how the festival has changed in recent years and assesses if it is still the place for artists to 'make' it.

Music this week from Scotland's Beta Band and Edwyn Collins, Monty Python and Sandie Shaw.
