Comedy Workout November

04/11/2020 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm GMT

PWYW

Following the success of our first season of Zoom events earlier this year, Funny Women are inviting you to our Comedy Workout – a varied programme designed to bring the community closer together, whether it’s to warm up our creative brains, flex our chuckle muscles or stretch out our funny bones.

In this session, to celebrate the conclusion of our recent – and most unique – Funny Women Awards, we’re giving you a chance to get to know this year’s winner Izzy Askwith, as well as one of our runners up Eryn Tett. We’ll be discussing the experience of getting into the Finals, the difference between performing for stage, zoom and screen, and what the future looks like as we carry on through the New Normal.

There will also be plenty of time to ask your own burning questions, and to get to know the Panelists, the Funny Women team and each other in a time where it is more important than ever to stay connected. Get your tickets now!
