Time of the Month London: February

Itching to do comedy?  Time of the Month is the BEST night to begin your comedy journey and explore your comedic potential. It’s a night of two parts…come to both or just perform at Showtime.

PLAYTIME: 6.3o – 7.30pm, £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 special guests this month are Alys Metcalf & Roxy Dunn of Viscera Theatre Company. They are a producing team and comedy duo. They are currently on the BBC Comedy Room scheme, have a TV project in development with Merman and have been optioned by Hartswood Films. Both their Edinburgh shows, You Only Live Forever (2018) and, In Tents and Purposes (2016) received a 5 star sell-out run and critical acclaim from national press. Their web series Habits was awarded Runner Up in the Funny Women Comedy Shorts Award 2017/18.

As an actor, Roxy has appeared in multiple BBC comedies and was a series regular on Channel 4’s Babylon, directed by Danny Boyle. Alys was an original cast member of The Play That Goes Wrong (West End/ No.1 Tour) and appears in the forthcoming feature film, Dirty God (BBC Films/BFI).

They will be sharing their experiences of writing shows, creating stories and overarching narratives.


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.
