Stand-Up: A Bunch of Japes

Carly Heath, February 20, 2017

Monday nights at city-centre bar Smoke and Mirrors are given over to comedy, as local comics George Rigden, Chris Fay and Alex Mahoney host this weekly night for comedians to try out new material.

Each night features a headline act supported by various local and touring comedians. 2015 saw the likes of Russell Howard, Josh Widdicombe, Jon Richardson, Alan Carr and Gary Delaney all dropping in, so keep an eye on lineups – or just take a chance, as the mix of established and emerging comics is always attractive – as is the ticket price.

Forthcoming lineups as follows:

Jan 30: Tom Taylor
Feb 6: Rhys James (pictured)
Feb 13: George Rigden (Leicester Comedy Festival preview)
Feb 20: Joe Jacobs
Feb 27: Liam Pickford
March 6: Nick Elleray
March 13: Simon Feilder
March 20: Francis Foster
March 27: Jordan Brookes
Keep an eye on the Smoke & Mirrors listings page for further lineup news.
