Leicester Comedy Festival 1 Minute from Queen Street
Most people love a good laugh and that’s why the Leicester Comedy Festival has been so popular for over 30 years.
Whether your sense of humour is dry, dark, silly or sophisticated, laughter is without doubt food for the soul and it’s this that sees people coming from all over the country to be involved every year.
When you’re going to a great event, one of the few downsides can mean that sometimes travelling to and from the venue takes the edge off ever so slightly. But not for anyone living down our way.
This year, the Leicester Comedy Festival is only one minute from Queen Street, which means that our residents can easily enjoy a fantastic line up that includes Jimmy Carr, Johnny Vegas, Mock The Week’s Romesh Ranganathan and international award winning Irish comedian David O’Doherty.
Then, once the fun and laughter comes to an end and it’s time to go home, they can be there in no time at all to keep the good feelings flowing.
An Overview Of The Festival?
This year, the UK’s official comedy party, which is produced by the registered charity Big Difference Company, will take place from February 8-26, and already it’s been going down a storm in and around the city. On top of performances from some fantastic stand up names, the festival also features comedy film, poetry, theatre and art exhibitions, as well as something for the little ones to enjoy.
During almost three weeks of fun in February, over 800 events will take place, which will include the UK Pun Championships, Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year (which Romesh Ranganathan won in 2013), comedy routines, interviews and a host of well-known famous faces.
The majority of events will be held around Leicester city and the Cultural Quarter, which just so happens to be where the Queen Street Quarter are located, right in the heart of the comedy festival zone.
