Leicester Comedy Festival


Leicester Comedy Festival

The Festival is back for its 28th year!

Of course, this year things are slightly different but there are brilliant online events lined up for comedy lovers everywhere. The 19 day festival will feature appearances by Tom Allen, Daliso Chaponda, Felicity Ward, Tez Ilyas, Stewart Lee, Sikisa, Esther Manito, Mark Watson, Eshaan Akbar, Patrick Monahan and many, many more. Regular favourites like The (Not So!) Late Comedy Club and the Beyond A Joke seminar programme are returning and in addition to this there is a fantastic line up of podcasts being recorded live at the festival, live streamed comedy shows and exclusive Q&A interviews with a bunch of friends of the festival.

The UK Kids' Comedy Festival is also back for its 3rd year and you can check out the programme by visiting
