Funny Women CEO, Lynne Parker said: “I’ve seen the comedy circuit grow and expand in diversity since our very first event in 2002, and women have made a huge contribution and impact on the art form. This is the 16th time we’ve run the Funny Women Awards and our final, as ever, is a rich melting pot of talent. I’m extremely proud of what Funny Women has become.”
