The Funny Women Awards have been going since 2003, and we’re happy to be the launchpad for so many talented comedians, writers and short film makers. Whether you’re a stand-up, sketch group, script writer or just like making funny YouTube films with your mates, we’re all about celebrating your talent and putting you in front of the right people to progress your comedy career.
Things are going to be a little different this year. As we are currently running the Awards without any funding or sponsorship we have given ourselves a bit more time to explore new associations and relationships. Heats for the Stage Award will be running throughout October and November, with regional finals and the charity final taking place early in 2018.
Funny Women is very proud to be collaborating with the Women in Comedy Festival, and we will be running heats from 23rd to 27th of October in Manchester as part of the festival.
We are also teaming up with some of our fave venues, promoters and festivals to run heats for the Stage Award in Dublin, WOW Exeter, WOW Perth, Funny Things Wolverhampton, Brighton and London. Huge thanks to those of you who have helped make this happen!
Don’t forget that you can also enter for the Comedy Shorts and Comedy Writing Awards and nominate your favourite show or your own show for Best Show Award now! AND you can enter more than one category to show off your many talents and be in with a better chance of winning!
