Comedy comedy comedy. From now until February there’s going to be plenty to look forward to as Leicester Comedy Festival rolls round again! But whilst we await the festival programme check out some of the other comedy shows that have just been announced.


Angelos Epithemiou
Firebug, Wednesday 27 November

angelos epithimiou

Fresh from a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019, fan favourite Angelos is back on tour for the first time in eight years. He will be doing his stuff and standing in front of people for about a month, including a night at Firebug! Come and see Angelos prepare his speech for the UN and in typical Epithemiou style see him try and get back on your telly screens with a hilarious take on Brad Pitt’s perfume advert as well as showing the audience his audition tape for Top Gear. A night with Angelos isn’t only entertaining but allows audiences to forget anything sane, normal or political – a pure treat and escapism at its finest.

Tickets go on ale on Friday 11 October.
