The purpose of this site is to list information on smaller comedy/stand-up events in Leicester and Leicestershire. You may already know Leicester is home to a big comedy festival every February but there are plenty of gigs happening all through the year.

It's often hard to find out when and where local events are happening.

Here you can find those close to you whether you live in the area or are visiting.

It can be harder for smaller venues to get the word out in the shadow of bigger venues but often the quality at local gigs is just as good and they often book the very same acts.

You'd be surprised at the quality of professional acts that regularly play venues in pub rooms and village halls around the U.K. and now Micro-pub are promoting comedy too. 

Recently, acts such as Alfie Moore (It's a Fair Cop - Radio 4), Laura Lexx (Live at The Apollo) and Scott Bennett (Midlands Act of The Year 2018) have graced the stages of tiny venues in Leicestershire and are all back soon!

Basic listing for events is free but if you can make a very small donation to help with running costs it would be most apprieciated. You can also boost the prominence of your event for a small donation.
