Comedians Indoors Getting Creative: Part 9

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… 

Sarah Millican has been reading extracts from her hilarious autobiography, How to be Champion, on her Instagram. Join Sarah every day for a bit of comedy wisdom, confession and childhood tales here! 

Ada Campe is self-isolating and counting down the days on YouTube, sharing Ada’s mad-cap imagination. Dive in!

Ventriloqueen Nina Conti, and her thrusty sidekick Monkey, took part in a live stream on Show and Tell this week – joining plenty of other amazing acts who are doing live streams which are available to watch later. You can find out more here!
