THIS IS A LOCAL GIG FOR LOCAL PEOPLE - if coming into the city centre after dark fills you with a sense of dread, don't despair - Leicestershire Stands Up is providing a series of gigs at various venues around the county for you rural types. Run by Just the Tonic, the bills will include at least 3 top comics and an MC, at locations including Groby, Kirby Muxloe, Lubenham, Melton Mowbray, Swithland and Whetstone.

In summary then, there's absolutely sh*tloads to choose from, so get booking those tickets and laugh yourself silly between Fri 8th and Sunday 24th Feb! I have one more preview post in the bag, in which I will detail some of the shows that our local Leicester folk are putting on during the fest - look out for that in the next day or two, and I also have a couple of special interviews to write up, in which I talk to some stars of the festival about their shows, and find out who they're looking forward to seeing at the fest. Ta-ra for now!
