Itching to do comedy? Funny Women’s Time of the Month is the BEST night to begin your comedy journey. It’s a night of two parts…come to both or just perform at Showtime.
Please note that due to a diary issue (totally our fault!) our May event has been moved back a week to Tuesday 5th June. Huge apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
PLAYTIME: 6.30 – 8.00pm, £10
Meet like-minded women with a passion for comedy, learn how to generate material through improvised comedy, share scripts, sets jokes and ideas from comedians currently performing on the circuit, and receive one-to-one comedy advice from the Funny Women team.
Our guest this month is screenwriter Anna Southgate. Having worked as an actress, presenter and stand-up, Anna started screenwriting for BBC TV and Radio 4 impressionist show, Dead Ringers. She is the award-winning writer-director of I Seek Asylum starring Emma Thompson and Doon Mackichan, and currently has a comedy feature in development with Hugh Bonneville.
As a freelance screenwriting consultant, Anna sits on the Executive Committee of Euroscript and is Script Editor on Rather Good Film’s upcoming comedy, backed by the BFI. In 2017/18 she was a mentee for Bird’s Eye View’s Filmonomics and selected for the Shorts to Features scheme backed by the British Council. Anna is proud to be a member of Women in Film & TV and an influencer for Reclaim the Frame, a movement to champion female film-makers.
SHOW TIME: 8.15pm, FREE!
Funny Women knows that comedy can be scary, so this night provides a platform for women to get on stage and perform comedy for the first time. Even if you’re already a regular on the circuit, Time of the Month is a great night to try out new material in front of a warm and supportive audience.
