Providing awesome free comedy in the Cultural Quarter, Jokes on Us won the ‘Liberty Award’ at this year’s Leicester Comedy Festival for their efforts and will be back at next year’s festival with a full programme of up-and-comers, award winners and polished gagsmiths from around the country.
Headlining this section will be Bethany Black, whose brand of provocative stand-up has taken her all the way from the Chortle Student Comedy Awards to being a critically-acclaimed comedian, writer, LGBT icon and actor, starring in Channel 4’s Cucumber and BBC1’s Doctor Who. “Material is as black as her eye shadow… delivery as deadpan as a Goth at a garden centre” – BBC.
