Tim Fitzhigham: Valentine’s Kama Sutra

After not being nominated for a single AWARD LAST YEAR Tim FitzHigham is BACK at Dave’s Leicester Comedy Festival 2015.  TWO SHOWS – both at Bob Slayer’s (insert your own adjective here) venue Heroes@LCB Depot 31 Rutland Street, Leicester LE1 1RE

14th FEB VALENTINE’S NIGHT SUTRACULAR – it’s a one off revival of Tim’s legendary Karma Sutra Special unlocking the secrets of the greatest love book – come and laugh…the perfect way to spend the 14th

21st FEB HELLFIRE – the incredible TRUE story of a fan letter that leads Tim on a rapidly unravelling Da Vinci coded puzzle of his own, The Illuminate, The Knights Templar and near death await…and in the words of someone else ‘my is it funny’ (5 stars)

Tim will also be appearing in Fool Member’s Club – his late night nonsense of a…not so much a show more a travesty with Bob (insert your own made up surname here) and Comedy in the Dark on 20th Feb.

Saturday 21st February

Funz and Gamez

This might be of interest to your readers with kiddies and grandkiddies?  It’s a fantastic family comedy show which started in a tiny dingy room in Edinburgh last year as a bit of a laugh, it took the Fringe by storm and ended up packing out the houses, winning a Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award and transferring to the Soho Theatre for a month run over Christmas.  It’s such a brilliant – albeit very naughty – experience for all ages. Amazing reviews and we had a ton of comedians come with their kids and rave about it on Twitter – Josh Widdicombe, Sarah Millican, Katherine Ryan, Micky Flanagan, Michael McIntyre to name a few.
