The Funny Women Awards have just celebrated their 11th year, and over that period we have been the first to see so many wonderful female comedians who are now major names on the comedy circuit. We are proud to have played a part in bringing more female voices onto the comedy scene and we have been inspired by the fantastic array of new talent we've seen in the live auditions every year.
We endeavour to be one of the friendliest and most diverse competitions on the comedy circuit, and we are honoured that so many acts choose to perform their very first gig with us. We see every entrant perform live, and even if you don't feel quite ready, why not give it a go just to kick start your performing career and gain a bit of stage time?
The Funny Women Awards are open to new female acts (up to five years performing) who can perform comedy in front of a live audience. We look for stand ups, impressionists, sketches, character and musical comics, ventriloquists, magicians, double acts and ensembles… anything, as long as it has a comic twist.
The award categories:
Sponsored by Benefit Cosmetics
The best all-round comedy entertainer, and a prize that includes a bursary and career building development package.
Sponsored by Blue Nun Wines
Celebrating the best musical, sketch, character, impressionist or just plain unusual acts!
In association with The Comedy Unit and The Huffington Post
Got a talent for writing? We know that not every writer is a performer, so this is an opportunity for those happier behind the scenes to truly shine.
In association with Refuge
This award looks to find those innately funny females that make our lives that little bit brighter. Whether this is someone who has a natural comedic flair or someone who uses humour to get through the most adverse situations, nominate your real funny woman to help us raise funds and awareness for domestic violence charity Refuge.
