Funny Women Awards semi-finalists announced!

Phew! It's been a long road, but we're finally here! The time has come to announce the 50 hilarious acts going through to the semi-finals of the Funny Women Awards 2013.

We've seen over 200 acts including comedy poets, self-harming wizards, bag ladies, clowns, burlesque acts, faded french film stars, ladies hit over the head with home-made giant cotton buds, not to mention a bonanza of ukuleles (or whatever the collective noun is for ukuleles). 

The entries have been truly international, with performers hailing from as far afield as Australia, Iceland, Greece, America, Spain, Canada, and the wonderfully wacky ones seemingly from another planet entirely!

So without further ado, here are the 50 semi-finalists of the Funny Women Awards 2013….
