Comedians Catherine Bohart and Sarah Keyworth were announced as the winners of the 99 Club’s Edinburgh Fringe bursary for female and non-binary comedians. The pair win £500 each which will go towards funding their solos shows, Immaculate and Dark Horse, at Edinburgh Fringe.
Both Catherine and Sarah are past Funny Women Awards finalists, in 2016 and 2015 respectively. They were joined by 2017 Funny Women Awards regional finalists Olga Koch, Adele Cliff and Jenan Younis, who were all awarded £100.
Last year’s winner Lauren Pattison (another Funny Women Awards finalist!) headlined the event, which is in its second year.
Don’t miss all the finalist’s shows in Edinburgh and congratulations to the winners!
