We’ve announced our 2021 Funny Women Stage Award sponsored by Sky Studios finalists and now it’s time to share with you the 10 comedians who made our 2021 Ones to Watch list!

The scoring for this year’s semi-finals was incredibly close. We were in the difficult but rather fantastic position of having to choose between 48 comedians and future stars. The judges scores between each of our entrants were separated by such small margins and we felt the Ones to Watch should take a-lot of encouragement from their performances. 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 showcase them within our events and showcases during our 20th Anniversary year, 2022.

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

Anshita Koul Germany
Freya Mallard UK – London
Lauren Douglin UK – South East
Madeleine MacMahon UK – London
Marjolein Robertson UK – Scotland
Roisin Caird UK – Scotland
Ruby Carr UK – London
Sashi Perera Australia
Sheba Montserrat UK – London
Tatty Macleod UK – London

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

The Stage Award final is on Thursday 23rd September at the Bloomsbury Theatre, London. You can buy your tickets here! 

The final will also be broadcast via our streaming partners, NextUp Comedy.

Why We Protest

Protest. It’s one of the first things we do. That cry all newborns make when they’re born? That’s them protesting being pulled from the lovely warm womb and out into this cruel harsh world. In fairness, I’d be livid too; I hear it’s nice in there. We’re born protesting and I think it’s one of the things that makes us human.

The Guide: December

AS IF the year is nearly over. If I were to give the year marks out of ten, I would be on the receiving end of an angry phone call from the year’s mother because the year had come home from school crying, and I would tell the year’s mother that she can’t shout me into a giving the year a better grade, because I’m a good teacher actually but there’s only so much you can do when your child is hellbent on being this much of an asshole. Does that make sense?
