Romesh Ranganathan, Milton Jones, Shazia Mirza, Tim Vine, Ed Byrne, Adam Rowe, Adele Cliff, Alex Edelman, Arthur Smith and Bilal Zafar are among the comedians who have donated jokes to a poster which has been created to raise money for the Leicester Comedy Festival.
Gary Delaney contributed one of his classic one-liners: "As a kid I was made to walk the plank. We couldn't afford a dog."
Pun Champion Masai Graham gave them: "I've written a joke about a fat badger but I couldn't fit it into my set."
Also featured on the poster are gags by Chris Norton Walker, Darren Walsh, Eshann Akbar, Flo & Joan, Glenn Moore, Lou Sanders, Mark Dolan, Masai Graham, Nick Helm, Nish Kumar, Phil Nichol, Rhys James, Rob Auton, Rosie Jones, Sajeela Kershi, Samantha Baines, Tez Ilyas and Tom Allen.
A number of the comedians involved got early important career breaks at the festival. Romesh Ranganathan won the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award in 2013.
Barry D Bulsara designed the poster which is available to buy here.
