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, running awards heats between the 19th and 29th of October as part of the festival.
BUT if you can’t wait that long you can 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!
