A Great Support Act!

As Platinum members and sponsors of Leicester Comedy Festival’s Business Partners Club, we’ve long been committed to supporting and getting involved in the annual Leicester Comedy Festival – a relationship we’re proud to have built over twenty-three years.

From headline acts to more unusual and innovative shows like Comedy in the Dark and Hotel D’Comedie; Leicester has hosted Britain’s longest-running comedy festival since its creation in 1994.

We’re proud to have worked alongside them, having led the evolution of the festival’s brand from 1995 to the present day through our consistently creative annual campaign concepts such as 2011’s Underpants Award and 2015’s infamous ‘rubber chicken’.

Building on last year’s highly successful ‘Vote for Comedy’ campaign and CEO Geoff Rowe’s national debut as leader of the UK’s ‘Official Comedy Party’; Leicester has now received a state visit by HRH President Obonjo of the Lafta Republic to correspond with the launch of the 2018 Leicester Comedy Festival campaign.

Featuring over 830 events including stand-up, film, poetry, spoken work and comic theatre as well as some of the biggest names in comedy such as Jonathan Pie, Katherine Ryan and household favourite, Harry Hill; Leicester Comedy Festival is set to run across 69 venues throughout Leicestershire between the 7th-25th February, so check out the full programme and grab your tickets soon to avoid disappointment!

The festival is produced by Big Difference Company: a registered charity aiming to improve the outlook for people in different walks of life. It receives less than 5% from public subsidy; so please show your support and donate whatever you can here.
