Time of the Month South West

This is the BEST night to begin your comedy journey and scratch your comedy itch. It’s a night of two parts…come to both or just perform at Showtime. Hosted by Louise Leigh.

PLAYTIME: 6.00pm, £5

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 find support as you take those next steps in the world of comedy.

THIS MONTH: Funny Women Awards alumni Anna Keirle is coming to share her MCing expertise. So if you’re keen to host or compere, this is a must for you.

In 2003, Anna was runner up in the first Funny Women Awards. It was her third ever gig, and she was competing against women who’d been going 10 years. Since then, she’s honed her natural funnies and has now MCed for audiences from 4 to 15,000. We can’t wait to find out what she has to say on this very particular skill.

Last month’s session was ALMOST a sell-out. Please make sure you’re on the list (details below!)


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. And the Alchemy 198 audience is SUPER SUPPORTIVE!
