You lucky, lucky people.
As if the gorgeous weather wasn't reward enough for the foul extended winter we've all had to endure for so long, there's also a fine crop of comedy happening in the city this weekend to broaden your smiles and further flush your sun-kissed faces.
Shouty, sweating nutbox Nick Helm is headlining Just the Tonic on Friday and Saturday (if you haven't seen him yet I would strongly recommend doing so), supported by Romesh Ranganathan, Dan Evans and Tim Clark. Get your tickets here: http://www.justthetonic.com/leicester-comedy/
Also on Friday night at the Cookie Jar is Shaggers Comedy, which returns to the city after a sell-out show during the comedy festival. As the name suggests, it features a quartet of comedians telling hilarious real-life tales of a sexual nature.

And if you're not all laughed out (or hungover & sunburnt enough) by Sunday evening, there's another dose of Should I Stay or Should I Go? at Kayal, the showcase for new comics presented by Spiky Mike, in which the audience decides who stays on and who goes home to cry themselves to sleep. Details etc be here: http://www.funhousecomedy.co.uk/html/fun_house_comedy_venues_leicester.htm
So there you have it. There is literally NO EXCUSE for not going to see at least one of these fine shows this weekend (and no I will not accept "I forgot coz I was drinking in the park from midday").
