Leicester Comedy Festival Stand-Up Challenge

The University of Leicester was Associate Partner of the Leicester Stand Up Challenge 2021.

Seven brave participants from companies and organisations across the city were mentored by a professional comedian, who helped them develop their first ever five minutes of original stand-up comedy. The seven acts performed live on stage, in front of their colleagues, clients, friends, family and supporters, on 3 November 2021.

The event was in aid of the Big Difference Company, the charity behind the annual Leicester Comedy Festival.

The winner was Matt Holt (MGL Media/Spoon Jar Films). Second place was Adam English (Union Jack Radio); third was Laura Hailstone (De Montfort University). Also competing were Mike Dalzell, Sarah Thomson, Gary Pitt and Jon Ashworth MP.
