Raising a serious amount for charities
As well as giving the city a big laugh, Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival raises thousands of pounds for charity each year.
Among the comics standing up for good causes is Dan Nicholas, who will be among the performers taking part in Nibbles with Giggles, at Entropy, in Leicester, on Wednesday night.
Dan, who helps organise Nibbles with Giggles events, will be joined by acts including Anthony King and Chris Stokes.
The night is expected to sell out and raise £400 for Loros hospice.
It follows a previous Nibbles with Giggles night at the restaurant on Wednesday last week.
"Wednesday night had such a lovely atmosphere and everyone was having a great time," said Dan.
"For this coming week's show we've got some great Leicester comedians and we only have a couple of tickets left."
Dan first had the idea for Nibbles with Giggles in 2011 when he was a student in Leicester.
He and some friends had taken part in a London to Paris walk to raise funds for Parkinson's UK and Dan decided to hold a one-off stand-up night at Entropy, in Hinckley Road, which also raised money for Parkinson's.
In the past year, more events have been held for Loros each month at the restaurant, and the two special events for Dave's Leicester Comedy Festival feature the best of the comedians who have appeared so far.
Dan said: "It's been absolutely brilliant how well the tickets have sold and Wednesday's show is going to see the most money Nibbles with Giggles has ever raised."
Alex Gamble, corporate fund-raiser at Loros, in Groby Road, said the hospice was very grateful for the support.
Other shows will also be doing their bit for good causes.
On Thursday, Leicester Charity Link will be putting on its own show at Bistro Live, in Charles Street, Leicester.
The event, called Belly Full of Laughs, will feature food followed by music and laughter with local comedian Anthony King.
Every year, Leicester Charity Link helps more than 5,000 vulnerable adults and children in poverty by providing beds, cookers and food.
The final charity event will be Comedy Heaven, the spectacular finale for the comedy festival, in aid of Amnesty International and Prostaid.
The night will feature some of the best acts of the festival performing to raise money for good causes and see the festival out in style.
Festival director Geoff Rowe said: "Various charities approach us and it's good to be able to support them when we can.
"Things such as Nibbles with Giggles and the Leicester Charity Link show have been very popular and tickets for the Comedy Heaven night are selling very well, so hopefully we should raise a lot of money for good causes."
