Leicester Stand Up Challenge 2021

Thursday 17th June 2021

Meet and sponsor our brave participants who are taking part in the Leicester Stand Up Challenge 2021

The Stand Up Challenge is supported by individuals 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.

This year we are proud to announce support from our Main Event Sponsors The Miller Partnership and De Montfort University and from our Media Partners, Crosscut Media.

All proceeds from the Stand Up Challenge will support local Leicester charity Big Difference Company (registered charity 1135167), which runs Leicester Comedy Festival and The UK Kids’ Comedy Festival each February; and aims to improve the health & well-being of communities across the UK. Recent projects have included engaging and working with older people and children & young people.

Leicester Comedy Festival is the longest running comedy festival in Europe and has an annual economic impact to Leicester & Leicestershire of £3 million every year.  The main February festival offers exciting ways for local businesses to associate themselves with “one of the leading brands in the UK public arts” (The Times) and the Stand Up Challenge has rapidly become a key date in the annual business calendar.

*** We are looking for further participants to take on the Challenge and raise funds for Big Difference Company – get in touch if this could be you or someone you know! ***
