Sitting proudly in the shadow of The Curve Theatre in the city centre of Leicester is the Queen Victoria Arts Club. A classy venue for a pre-theatre meal or, as the case was on my visit, a night of comedy in the basement.
Comedy in The Midlands is now becoming a regular outing for us here at Artisan Traveller. Having experienced the professional scene at both The Leicester Comedy Festival and Funhouse at Bartons PLC, we decided to see what £1 gets you on a Wednesday night.
It’s safe to say that we are fully immersed into the UK comedy scene. The intimate gigs in the bars and pubs that hosted The Leicester Comedy Festival have given a whole new perspective on watching stand up comedy.
Who doesn’t like a laugh? In these morose times of Brexit uncertainty, it’s comedy that comes to the rescue once again. I’m very fortunate to live in Leicestershire, a county that is home to the largest comedy festival in England. The Leicester Comedy Festival.
