Funny Women Alternative Interviews

25/02/2021 @ 7:45 pm 9:00 pm GMT


Alternative Interviews are back and going digital. Hosted by the Daft Duo (Sara Palomarr and Angela Legg), this night is an alternative comedy extravaganza, presenting any genre of cabaret and performance art. As long as it’s keeping you laughing, anything goes!

Doors: 19:45, Show Start: 20:00

Each event has one question which the performers are challenged to use as inspiration. This month’s question is:

What film best describes your life? Bring your adaption to life through your comedy performance- all performance genres welcome.


We know that connecting over digital performances are a little different. So you know when you hear something that you like, but it doesn’t necessarily make you laugh? Well, every time this happens to you, we welcome you to blow bubbles.

This event exists to provide a supportive performance space for comedy performers who are women and non-binary people.

Tickets are available on a Pay What You Want basis.


Ally Ryan is a comedian and daughter of two based in Dublin. She lives in fear of her mother seeing her comedy because that will mark her last day on this earth, seeing as it’s mostly family secrets she talks about onstage (btw we think we may have inadvertently killed our grandmother).
