Comedy Chill Out – The Funny Women Awards

24/05/2021 @ 7:00 pm 8:15 pm BST

FREE

Funny Women is inviting you to our next Comedy Chill Out, part of our varied Comedy Workout programme to bring our community together and empower women and non binary members to find their path in the comedy industry. 

Returning  after the popularity of our previous session, we are giving you an opportunity to talk with members of the Funny Women team to discuss everything about entering our Awards. The annual Awards have launched many female comedy careers including Zoe Lyons, Sarah Millican, Susan Calman, Bridget Christie, Andi Osho, Katherine Ryan, Sara Pascoe, London Hughes, Jayde Adams and Desiree Burch. Our different awards categories champion the best in stage, in script and online.

The team will be on hand to answer any questions that may be on your mind. This can include an inside track on how we have been adapting the Awards in light of the current impact of the pandemic, or maybe you just want our hot tips on how to stand out for all the right reasons? This is a session that is entirely influenced by your questions!

Tickets are free, but registration is required. 

Registrations and nominations for the Funny Women Awards are OPEN. You can find out more about our website here.
