It seems ages since Leicester Comedy Festival and we all need some laughs! Lucky for us we’ve got some pretty great comedians coming back to Leicester for their Edinburgh warm up shows. Some of the shows have already sold out (because Jon Richardson playing at The Cookie is pretty special and bound to sell out very quickly) but there’s still an opportunity to grab those last few tickets for the remaining gigs.

Plus as an extra bonus you can catch Milton Jones at Just The Tonic this weekend (Friday 24 June) doing a special intimate show. Tickets here.
