🗞️ Live Laugh Leeds – Comedy in March

Words by

One of my top recommendations of the month comes from the Hyde Park Book Club. Phil Ellis’ Excellent Comedy Show (his words, but accurate) plays on the 4th of March. The HPBC also has shows this month from two other high-class stand-ups, in Ania Magliano, and Olga Koch.

There are two great comedy shows in the Leeds Playhouse Bramhall Rock Void this month. It’s A Motherf**king Pleasure sees disability-led theatre company FlawBored, hot off the back of their smash-hit run at Edinburgh Fringe, set out to make as much money as possible from the guilt of non-disabled, anxious people (like you?), while the Rubbish Shakespeare Company returns with Romeo and Juliet.

Alongside their regular Saturday night shows, the Hi-Fi Club will enjoy the delights of Rich Wilson and rising star Dan Tiernan on the 9th of March. It’s spitting! Garlic bread! A-ha! (That last one is Peter Kay doing an impression of Alan Partridge, before you write in). Yes, one of the world’s most successful stand-ups is back in Leeds – at the First Direct Arena on the 22nd of March.

Edinburgh award-winning Sam Campbell has two nights at the City Varieties on the 1st and 5th of March – and the beautiful old music hall also plays host to some of my favourites this month, including Geoff Norcott, Fin Taylor, and the brilliant Josh Pugh. Not only that, the hugely successful podcast ‘The Bugle’ sees host Andy Zaltzman bring a series of virtual guests to the City Varieties on the 24th of March, and the ingenious Dom Joly reports back on his search for the world’s weirdest conspiracy theories.

The comedian’s comedian, Ross Noble is celebrating his 21st solo stand up tour and plays at Leeds Grand Theatre on the 17th of March, while there’s an evening with local legend Billy Pearce at the City Varieties on the 26th March.

As ever, look out for regular comedy nights at Headrow House, The Original Oak, The Hi-Fi Club, The Old Woollen, and the Parkside Tavern.
