Comedians Indoors Getting Creative: Part 20

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… 

Check out comedy sketch trio Muriel and their take on what it is to be on Twitter in 2020!

Award-winning Musical Comedian (Musical Comedy Awards & 2Northdown New Comedian Awards 2019), Actor (Harry Hill’s ClubNite) and Musician (in Award-Winning Rock n Roll Band – The Daisy Chains), Katie Pritchard, has discovered a new career in art during lockdown. Initially offering to create her trademark “Crap Art Portraits” of your photos from just £5 (which you can still purchase via her Ko-Fi page https://ko-fi.com/katiepritchards), Katie has decided to go ahead and ruin T-Shirts and Jumpers too with her fun artwork under the title “Katie PritchArt”, and it launches TODAY! Check out the website here!

Primadonna Festival will be going live on Funny Women’s Facebook at 8pm today (31st Friday) with a challenge: Make Sioned Laugh! In this gameshow women will try to make Sioned William, Radio 4’s commissioner for comedy in three minutes! Lynne Parker and Naomi Paxton will also be on board to help judge.

Fern Brady will be hosting the Edinburgh Unlocked audiobook, released on 6th August, for those who still want their hit of the Fringe which has been cancelled this year. The audiobook will feature Sofie Hagen, Lou Sanders, Jen Brister, Kemah Bob, Chloe Petts, Yuriko Kotani, Shelf and more!

We will be back next week with more projects, you can tweet us @funnywomen or contact us on Facebook if you have a project you want us to share… Check out last week’s picks here!
