Comedians Indoors Getting Creative: Part 5

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…   

2008 Funny Women Awards winner Katherine Ryan has launched a new podcast called Telling Everybody Everything. Nothing is off the table with Katherine Ryan, the comedian discusses all sorts, from marrying her childhood sweetheart to pregnancy loss to the Tiger King. Her sister and daughter also feature. You can listen to Telling Everybody Everything here! 

2013 Funny Women Awards finalist, author and actor Samantha Baines has been presenting the Silly News on her social media platforms to brighten everyone’s day. Baines has also started a new podcast The Divorce Club in which she talks to fellow divorcées and divorcés about their experiences.

Comedian and host extrordinaire Sikisa has announced that her comedy chat show Girl Code will be coming to us at home via the internet from next week: “Imagine if Loose Women was funny.” You can keep up to date with the show on its Instagram page here! 

2019 Funny Women Jen Ives has been busy, writing and performing in her new web series Two Steps Back, if you like dancing, Furbies and comedy then this is the show for you. Catch a glimpse into how Jen is coping living at home in isolation…
