Time of the Month – South West

Our popular Time of the Month try out and open mic format now takes place in Bristol!

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.

We’re delighted to be back at Alchemy 198, a fantastic cafe bar gallery set at the heart of Gloucester Road Central, Bristol and this month’s event will be hosted by Jessie Nixon.

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 receive one-to-one comedy advice from the Funny Women team.

This month we have a very special guest facilitator in the form of Angie Belcher who is an award-winning stand-up comedian, writer, performance poet and public speaking coach. Angie will help you to develop your on stage character and  to write jokes that are authentically ‘you’.  She will share some theory and models she has used with some of the top TED talkers so that you can write material that will get you remembered and regaled.

In addition to an amazing list of accolades and awards, Angie also lovingly curates The Comedy Depot and AFTERMIRTH comedy club and is a creative facilitator, teaching students, corporates and young people how to be authentic, confident and fantastic on stages across the country. Angie is also stand-up comedy tutor for the BA Contemporary Circus with Physical Theatre at Circomedia. She is proud graduate of the Institute for the Development of Human Potential and holds a masters diploma in humanistic psychology.  As if that isn’t enough, Angie also performs as Odious Vex, a 17 year old rubbish poet from Swindon.


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.
