Announcing the 2020 Funny Women Stage Awards Ones to Watch

We’ve announced our 2020 Funny Women Stage Award finalists and now it’s time to share with you the eight comedians who made our 2020 Ones to Watch list!

Whilst not in the finals this year we’ll be watching our Ones To Watch intently over the next year and can’t wait to host them onstage IRL as soon as we can!”

And here are this year’s Funny Women Ones to Watch:

Kathy Maniura
Ambika Mod
Karen Hobbs

We can’t wait to see what these talented comedians get up to in their comedy careers!
