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).
Anissa Praquin is a Glasgow based poet and walkabout performer who is interested in queer bodies and all the fun you can have with them (including their own!).
Katie Mcleod is a trained actor, having two Edinburgh runs under her belt with a self-penned solo show ‘Losing My Mindfulness’ she now brings her comedy skills to bear as a very promising newcomer to the stand-up scene.
Jacqueline Jay Wilde is a Scottish writer, performer and occasional director who thinks she is funny.
Jaleelah Galbraith is a Bristol based stand up. Jaleelah is currently writing her third full length show Fraudian Slip which she hopes to debut this year. Her first show was It is a Truth (2018) and her second Age Fright; 35 and Counting (2019), she performed both at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as in Bristol and London. She is anecdotal, loves a good story and is very sarcastic!

After completing the Laughing Horse comedy course in 2013, she has become a regular face on the Scottish comedy circuit. Lubna has gigged in the UK as well as USA. With humour that bases around her Asian heritage, Lubna attempts to both break down and play on the stereotypes attached to her background.
