Big Difference Company presents

The Stand Up Challenge is supported each year by business people who take up the challenge to write and perform their first ever 5 minutes of stand-up comedy, live on stage, in front of their colleagues, clients, friends and family, whilst raising funds for a local charity.

The Stand Up Challenge shows in 2015 and 2016 saw a total of 24 brave participants from the business community take to the stage in both Leicester and Nottingham and help raise funds for the on going work of the charity Big Difference Company.
