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…
Emma Sidi launched the pilot episode of her telenovela La Princesa De Woking. It is hilariously camp, wonderfully shaky and brilliantly dramatic, muy bueno!
Did you see Michaela Coel’s new show I May Destroy You? Comedian Sophie Duker did and she is OBSESSED. If you are too then listen to Sophie Duker discuss the show with her friends on her new BBC Sounds podcast OBSESSED with… I May Destroy You here.
When she isn’t performing stand up or acting, 2017 Funny Women Awards winner Thanyia Moore is working out and she is holding regular aerobics dance classes. We’re pretty sure she will soon be comedy’s answer to Joe Wicks. Find out more email email@example.com.
Stand up comedian Jenan Younis is uploading snippets of her comedy to Spotify, you can listen to them here!
