Mike Simpson: Once in a Generation
Venue: The Globe - Upstairs
In 2019 a top comedy writer told Mike: "I saw you in 1986 - you had the best material I ever heard." So, 35 years after his brief stand-up career, Mike has decided to return to the mic for a unique, one-off gig. Has he wasted his life when he could have been a comedy star? Or was he right to retire at 19? Mike's not on YouTube, he's not on the circuit. This could be your only chance to see the Greatest Stand-Up Who Never Was. Or could be a waste of an evening. But you won't know unless you're there. Support from Thomas Simpson (18), a graduate of Leicester's own Laugh Term Comedy School.
