Welcome to Leicester Comedy Festival

Welcome to Leicester Comedy Festival – the official comedy party for the UK!  Our 2017 Festival will take place from 8-26 February and we are expecting the event to be the biggest ever!  In 2016 we hosted over 780 shows in 65 venues in 19 days; since the festival ended we have had Brexit, Farage, Trump, Clinton, May, Johnson and Corbyn.  We reckon the UK needs a different kind of party; an official comedy party.

The 2017 festival (“one of the big events on the UK comedy calendar” The Guardian) will feature a huge range of shows and special events including The UK Pun Championships, Silver Stand Up & Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year.  Sign up to our newsletter, or follow us on social media, to get all the latest updates.

See you in February! Vote for Comedy #onlyjoking
