Itching to do comedy? Come and scratch that itch at Funny Women’s Time of the Month, our regular comedy workshop, networking and scratch event.
It’s a night of two parts…come to both or just perform at Showtime.
PLAYTIME: 6 – 7.30pm, £10
Meet like-minded women with a passion for comedy, learn how to generate material through improvised comedy, share scripts, sets jokes and ideas from comedians currently performing on the circuit, and receive one-to-one comedy advice from the Funny Women team.
We also have a very special guest expert, Bella Younger, creator of Deliciously Stella, who will be talking about becoming a social media sensation! Since debuting at The Edinburgh Festival in 2015, she’s been named as one of Glamour magazine’s top eight female comedians and as one of the Evening Standard’s most influential Londoners – twice. You’re most likely to recognise her from her Instagram account ‘Deliciously Stella,’ which currently boasts 140,000 followers.
Having given voice to her Deliciously Stella character at a Funny Women workshop, Bella has achieved international acclaim and appeared everywhere from the cover of The Times to being the top trending topic worldwide on Buzzfeed, being viewed over 1 million times. Just don’t ask her if she ‘eats clean.’
SHOWTIME: 8pm, FREE!
Funny Women knows that comedy can be scary, so this night provides a platform for women to get on stage and perform comedy for the first time. Even if you’re already a regular on the circuit, Time of the Month is a great night to try out new material in front of a warm and supportive audience. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a five-minute spot to perform.
Come along and give comedy a go!
