October is Black History Month, and what better way to honour it than to attend an event celebrating the black community in an industry that is still notably lacking in diversity? The Y Theatre has you covered…

Comedy Of Black Origin and 2Funky Comedy Jam are hosting a Black History Month Kings Of Comedy special at the Y Theatre this October, and for your money you will get four great circuit comedians with a wealth of TV, radio and live comedy experience under their belts.

Kane Brown has performed all over the world, appearing on bills with the likes of Chris Rock and placing first in a 9-nation comedy competition. Aurie Styla has been performing comedy since 2010 and has performed on the BBC and ITV, as well as running his own comedy company. Kojo has performed on BBC radio and TV and MTV, as well as winning best newcomer and best male comedian at the Black Entertainment Comedy Awards, and Danny “Slim” Gray has supported US acts like Kevin Hart in the UK as well as being the first black British comic to play the Hollywood Comedy Store.

Black History Month Kings of Comedy is at The Y Theatre on 8th October. leicesterymca.co.uk.
