Funny Women Live in London

April 30 @ 7:30 am 9:30 pm BST

We’re back! Join us for Funny Women Live in London thanks to our amazing new venue partners, the Groucho Club! It’s been a while but we’re excited about this opportunity right in the heart of London’s Soho.

This is an ‘open mic’ event based on our pre-Covid Time of the Month formula offering performers vital stage time, whether that’s for the first time or more established acts looking for a safe place to try out new material. Support and feedback is all part of the service!

We are expecting a high demand so offering a maximum of 12 spots for performers on a first come, first served basis – please apply direct to Rachel Barber our London producer, via email rkbarber87@googlemail.com.

This first event takes place on Tuesday 30th April, thereafter we will be at the Groucho Club on the last Monday of the month.
