Make Me Happy is an innovative programme run by Big Difference Company, producers of the annual Leicester Comedy Festival.  Make Me Happy involves a range of projects which use comedy and humour to engage with people of all ages and communities.



They’ve become much more than a comedy festival.  They’ve also been able to project comedy as a vehicle for strong community and social messages”  The Times



Our work is project funded by a range of funders, commissioners and partners and we are always keen to develop exciting opportunities and partnerships.

We don’t have many “off the shelf” projects; we prefer to design bespoke solutions which specifically meet the needs of our partners and their communities.  We use the knowledge and expertise built up over 20 years, together with a network of brilliant comedians, performers and cultural practitioners.


This website gives a flavour of some of the projects we’ve delivered.  If what we do interests you please get in touch.
