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…
Funny Women digital creative strategist Mariana Feijó wears many hats, she is also a comedian, scientist and now she’s added podcaster to the mix! In her new podcast, Doughty, Mariana talks with guests about what bravery means to them and special moments in which they have been brave. Guests will chat about those moments when they have been brave, or even just gone slightly out of their comfort zone while discussing what does it even mean to be brave! You can listen to the show here!
