Leeds Needs Help: A Council in Session - Leeds International Festival

Leeds Needs Help: A Council in Session

This sold-out event at Sheaf Street was brought to you by the creators of self-help comedy cabaret ‘You Need Help.’ This was an unlikely but hilarious one-off evening of sketches, stand-up, lip-syncs, and town-planning!

Self-styled self-help gurus Harry and Jessie took it upon themselves to ‘fix’ Leeds and its unsuspecting citizens, and after speaking to “the people” and researching the issues facing the city, they put together a new vision for a CITY OF THE FUTURE.

Armed with a misplaced sense of confidence and no legitimate qualifications between them, the pair presented their ‘vision’ for public consultation – whether the public wanted it or not.

Leeds Needs Help was an evening of alternative comedy madness with one aim: to help the people of Leeds to “be normal or die trying”. Dark humour, sassy musical numbers, and a selection of local guest comedy performers left an audience feeling fabulous (if a little perplexed!).

If you’ve ever felt lost, if you’ve ever felt broken by the modern world, or if you’ve ever just got really annoyed on the inner ring road, this show was for you.
