Phoenix Square plays host once again to Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival with a bumper crop of live comedy shows plus films specially selected by comedians, from 3rd – 19th February.

 

As a result of a partnership between Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival and the Zulu Comedy Festival in Copenhagen, Phoenix Square will be hosting some of Denmark’s top comedians. Shows include The Best of Danish Stand-Up (presented in English) from 3rd - 5th Feb featuring, amongst other things, the world’s only Bagpipe-playing comedian, Claus Reiss! Tickets £5.

 

The Scandinavian fun continues on the 3rd and 4th Feb with Special Aid!, an improv show where major comedians perform the Danish equivalent of the popular UK show ‘Whose line is it anyway?’ (in English).  Tickets £5.

 

Comedy in the Dark on 10th and 11th Feb is a unique comedy experience where comedians take on the challenge of performing in complete darkness whilst their audience sit back in a completely blacked-out cinema auditorium. Tickets £10 (£8 conc).

 

Back by popular demand for its third year on 18th Feb is the hugely popular BUG music video show. Hosted by comedian, writer, and video director Adam Buxton, this special edition of BUG promises outstanding video clips and mindboggling online discoveries – complete with insightful and hilarious contributions from Adam. Tickets £15 (£12 conc).

 

A Finger of Judge on 4th Feb is a brand new show in which four of the Midlands’ finest comedians complete challenges to entertain, amuse and seek the audience’s ‘judgement’. Comedians include Tom Young (sell out show at last year’s Festival), Suzanne Rowland and Lindsay Waynes Carroll (both nominees for best new show at the Festival in 2010). Tickets £4.

 

The Cofilmic ‘Best of Festival’ Tour on 18th Feb provides Festival-goers with an opportunity to see award-winners from the UK’s first comedy short film festival. The audience will be able to vote for their favourites from a selection of short films, sketches and sitcom pilots – as judged by industry professionals. Tickets £8 (£6 conc).

 

Three classic films specially chosen by comedians will be shown during the Festival: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind on 7th Feb, chosen by comedian Josh Widdicombe; Where Eagles Dare
on 8th Feb, chosen by George Ryegold; and Back to the Future on 16th Feb, chosen by Chris McCausland. Tickets £6.

 

Tickets can be booked online at www.phoenix.org.uk or via the box office on 0116 242 2800.
