Big Difference Company presents

The Stand Up Challenge is supported each year by people from a variety of organisations and businesses who take up the challenge to write and perform their first ever 5 minutes of original 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, 2016 and 2017 saw a total of 30 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 Big Difference Company (registered charity 1135167). In November 2017, 6 participants took part in the first Stand Up Challenge show in Wolverhampton, in support of Creative Black Country.

On Thursday 26th April 2018 the Stand Up Challenge returned to Wolverhampton, where the event was in aid of Big Difference Company and Iain Watkins was crowned the winner.

We are delighted to announce that in the Autumn the Stand Up Challenge will return to Leicester, with the live show taking place on Wednesday 7th November 2018 as part of Leicester Business Festival.

The search for our 2018 participants is now live!
