Welcome to Leicester Comedy Festival
Welcome to Leicester Comedy Festival – the official comedy party for the UK! Our 2018 Festival will take place from 7-25 February.
The main festival will feature over 800 shows and some of the shows are now on-sale; these include Jonathan Pie, Paul Chowdhry, The UK Pun
Championships & The Gala Preview Show.
We are asking for your help to support new and emerging comedians at the festival. Our Circuit Breakers development programme will allow new comedians to perform at the festival and benefit from mentoring and support. Check out the page to make a pledge and receive some very special rewards. The festival is produced by registered charity Big Difference Company and we really appreciate your support.
Keep an eye out for further announcements over the next few months; the full brochure will be published in November.
We look forward to seeing you in February!
