Comedians aren’t just at risk of cabin fever during this time of social distancing and self-isolation, gig cancellations have meant not just loss of earnings but also fewer chances to try out new material or build audiences. However, being a creative lot, comedians have been flexing their comedy muscles online, using YouTube, Twitch, Twitter and other sites to connect with audiences, new and established alike. To help you get your comedy fix, every week we’ll be putting together a list of projects we’ve spotted online by funny women…

2014 Funny Women Awards winner Jayde Adams has been hosting a weekly cabaret from her couch on Facebook Live every Wednesday at 7.30pm. Jayde invites her friends from the worlds of drag, comedy, art, TV and music “to showcase their varied talents and some talents they didn’t even know they had and entertain you guys with new and experimental performances from their homes during lockdown.”

Actor and comedian Lauren Douglin has been posting a series on Instagram called Quarantine with Kathy, following the ever optimistic modern housewife Kathy as she deals with being away from the girls, social distancing from her husband and keeping the good vibes going during the lockdown of 2020. a new episode is dropping this weekend so you’ll be bang up to date!
