Comedy comes in many forms and Leicester Comedy Festival has always tried to reflect that in the events programmed and the people who are involved in creating each festival. This approach has existed since the event began in 1994 and has resulted in numerous projects and partnerships with organisations across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We’re proud of the work we do with others, as we try and ensure the festival remains “a pretty broad grin” (The Guardian) for as many people as possible.

Event listings now feature an access key – this can be found on the bottom left hand corner of the listing.

We have a range of show for all ages across the festivals. Many shows will have an age guidance on their listings, which can be found in the bottom left hand corner of the event listing.
