About Us | Funny Women

The UK’s Leading Female Comedy Community

Funny Women was founded by Lynne Parker in 2002 to help women find their voice through performing, writing and using humour in business and everyday life.


The Funny Women Awards were launched in 2003, and we’ve seen some fantastic acts pass through our doors who are now major names on the comedy circuit including Bridget Christie, Katherine Ryan, Andi Osho and Sarah Millican.

We run comedy workshops, weekend events and conferences in London, Manchester, Brighton and Edinburgh on stand up, comedy writing, improvisation, sketch and character, and ‘Time of the Month’ a scratch night to try out new comedy ideas.

We have been helping women find their voice and use humour since 2002. Comedy educates and communicates so by employing the ‘tricks of the trade’ you can get ahead using humour - even at the office! Talk to us about your events and training needs and we will create something for you.
Help us support women in comedy by becoming one of a limited number of Best Friends Forever. For a single one-off payment of £100 our BFFs enjoy exclusive events, discounted tickets, regular newsletters and insider knowledge of the comedy industry.
We are invested in giving women a voice and dedicated to raising awareness and funds for a variety of causes that directly affect women. We are proud to support a number of amazing charities and believe that by laughing about life we can help and heal women.
