Get involved in Leicester Comedy Festival 2023!

In celebration of the Comedy Festival’s 30-year anniversary, Big Difference wants you to get involved. They’re looking for anecdotes, stories, pictures and personal accounts from those who have attended, volunteered or worked at the festivals – over the past 30 years. They’d love to hear your fond memories of the festival.

As previously announced, this will be the last festival for Geoff Rowe. He founded the festival and will be stepping down from his role after the event.

He said that “Leicester Comedy Festival has grown enormously since we set it up in 1994, and I’m enormously proud that we will be celebrating the festival’s 30th anniversary in February. We will welcome hundreds of comedians, to perform on many stages, and a massive audience who will be able to enjoy some of the best of British comedy”.
