We are delighted to announce that both ComedySportz and The Totally Improvised Musical will be returning to the UK's longest running comedy festival next February! With the official programme launching today and all tickets now on sale, we're excited to be back at The Leicester Comedy Festival in 2024.
ComedySportz sees two teams go for gold with quick-witted gags and games. Join us for an afternoon of fast-paced, feelgood fun on Sunday 11th February. With points determined by audience laughter, it is up to you to decide which team will be leaving Leicester victorious or in defeat. Either way, we promise that the real winners will be you, the audience! Tickets for ComedySportz are available here.
“ComedySportz is a show that is fun for kids and adults alike,” says Sean. “From shouting out suggestions to joining us on the pitch this a show that everyone can get involved in.”
Then, later that evening, The Totally Improvised Musical returns for the opening night of another brand new comedy musical based on a title given by the audience. Scenes, songs and stories are made up on the spot and there may even be some dancing. “The person whose title is picked gets a free pin badge. If that’s not enough to tempt you in, I don’t know what is,” adds Bron. “It’s a really nice pin badge.”
Previous show titles have included Frankenstein Joins an Acapella Group, Lawnmowers: The Musical, My Grandma Is a Parasite, Thomas the Tank Engine in Hell and Penguins Don’t Eat Cheese. “Some nights you end up singing a really touching love song and sometimes you end up doing a dance about ham,” adds Sean. “Every night is totally different which makes the show special for the audience that watched it. It’s not to be missed!”
Tickets for The Totally Improvised Musical are available here.
Leicester Comedy Festival is the longest running comedy festival in the UK, having taken place every February since 1994, and now regularly attracts over 120,000 people to venues across Leicester and Leicestershire throughout the 19 days. Following sold out shows at the Buxton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals earlier this year, we hope you'll join us for some award-winning improv comedy next February!
