2017 Funny Women Awards Heat: London

This is our 15th year of running the Funny Women Awards and once again we’re on the road across the UK and Ireland to find the newest and best female comedy talent.

We have some incredible alumni including Zoe Lyons, Kerry Godliman, Bridget Christie, Susan Calman, Katherine Ryan, Sara Pascoe, Jayde Adams, Desiree Burch and last year’s winner, Harriet Braine, who is already making a name for herself.

Our much sought-after Stage Award focuses on a series of live heats where each act performs five minutes of comedy in front of an audience.  You could follow in their footsteps by taking part or come along and support the next brilliant crop of female performers and watch them take their first steps towards comedy glory.

Register here if you want to take part or book now to be in the audience.

This London Heat at Hoxton Hall is hosted by award-winning comedian and actress Samantha Baines who has appeared in The Crown, Silent Witness, Call the Midwife and several BBC Comedies.   As a broadcaster Samantha also works regularly with BBC Radio stations including Radio 4 and Radio London and her writing credits include The Guardian, Huffington Post, Time Out and Stylist. samanthabaines.com/press
