What lies at the root of our human desires? Did the introduction of money to planet Earth transform man from a cave-dwelling simpleton to a greedy, manipulative and destructive megalomaniac? Was £150 still too much? Surely we want more than just your money…? Join us for our famous Comedy Debate for some much-needed Week 5 relief!

Deborah Frances-White
Comedian and writer, Frances-White is the creator of the podcast The Guilty Feminist, and continues to practice improvised comedy.
Emma Plowright

Ania Magliano-Wright
Ania refused this comedy debate thirty-six times until the current President bribed her with a free meal and a guarantee of 'at least one Crushbridge'. She's back, and more ready than ever to get down and dirty on the Chamber floor.

Ken Cheng
Ken Cheng is an ex-mathmo Cambridge dropout, professional poker player and stand-up comedian. Last year he won the Dave Joke of the Fringe Award. It’s alright.


Emma Plowright
Emma performs regularly with the Cambridge impronauts and footlights, and cofounded women's comedy collective stockings, writing for satirical women's magazine 'succubus'. She describes herself as banana in pyjamas number 1 in the streets, banana in pyjamas number 2 in the sheets.

Adi George
Adi is a fourth year ChemEng student, who performs improvised comedy with the Cambridge Impronauts. Adi was initially booked as the token Asian speaker, until Ken Cheng also agreed to do this debate. After that it was just too awkward to remove him.

John Tothill
Since the unexpected abdication of Pope Benedict XVI in 2013, John relinquished his duties at the Vatican and left to pursue a career as an international sex symbol. He is currently studying Music at Clare College, Cambridge, but when he grows up he wants to be a Union hack.
