See Britain's finest comedians at Leicester Comedy Festival
Get a glimpse at the future of British comedy at the annual Leicester Comedy Festival.
Leicester Comedy Festival’s eclectic bill features a mix of TV superstars, newcomers and established veterans trialling new material. Spread over two and a half weeks in February in venues across the city, every night is comedy night during the festival. Headline acts for previous events have included Russell Howard, Jason Manford and Jo Brand, but be sure to make time for some of the smaller acts too; tickets for these sets are often just £5 and give you the chance to see upcoming comedy superstars.
Another highlight on the calendar is the UK Pun Championships. One of the biggest events at the festival, the UK Pun Championships sees comedians from across Britain competing against each other in a “pantomime atmosphere”. Book in advance to see what all the fuss is about.
