To see how the A FUNNY CITY project came about-
To hear the interviews carried out by the young people from the Brite Centre
A Funny City is a Heritage Lottery Funded Project working with young people to research and archive the history of comedy in Leicester since 1979.
The breadth of material, combining historical videos, community comedy videos, old stills and posters, and sound and video recorded interviews, really delves into the heritage and humour of Leicester.
The whole of the catalogued archive will be housed with the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland records office, both as digitised material, as well as some of the original printed material. It will also be housed digitally with East Midlands oral history archive at Leicester University.
