Welcome to Leicester Comedy Festival

Hello!  You don’t know how good it is for us to be back for our 28th anniversary festival programme!  Over the last few months, everything has been a bit uncertain but we are thrilled to be returning, largely thanks to the massive support we continue to receive from our festival community.

Of course, things in February 2021 may be slightly different to what we have been used to but we have a brilliant festival lined up.  Confirmed so far are appearances from Ed Byrne, Stewart Lee, Zoe Lyons, Angela Barnes, Al Murray, Ian Stirling, Larry Dean, Rosie Jones, Angelos Epithemou, Tez Ilyas, Tony Law as well as regular exclusive events such as The UK Pun Championships and our Beyond A Joke seminar series.  New for 2021 include online shows, a brilliant line up of podcasts, and loads more.

We will be updating this site and our online brochure over the next weeks and months so keep visiting and checking out the latest announcements.  We remain committed to making sure Leicester Comedy Festival continues to be a massive celebration of British comedy.  Without the support of all our partners and you, our audience, none of this would be happening, so thank you so much for continuing to support the festival and our charity Big Difference Company.

See you in February!
