Meet the 2019 Funny Women Awards Finalists: Celya AB

We spotted Parisian Celya AB in our Coventry heat and invited her to our London semi-final at Dingwalls where we knew we had to have her in the 2019 Funny Women Awards final! 

Funny Women: How does it feel to be through to the 2019 Funny Women Awards final?

Celya AB: It feels great to be amongst such funny ladies. 

FW: Describe your comedy to us

CAB: I’d say it’s warm, daft and a bit on the weird side maybe? 

FW: What inspired you to start doing stand up?

CAB: Think I’ve always wanted to do it but in 2016 I saw stand up live for the first time in Paris in a tiny little bar. Stand up being relatively new in France. I fell in love with it and properly started  considering it then. 

FW: Who are your favourite funny women?

CAB: Maria Bamford, Tig Notaro, Kate McKinnon, and a Birmingham act called Lindsey Santoro who makes me howl.  

Join us at the Funny Women Awards Grand Final, Thursday 19th September at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London. For tickets click here!
