We've held shows, workshops and Awards heats across the country but we aren't content with just keeping you up to date with UK comedy news. Often we dip our toes in comedy news across the pond…
The Funny Women Awards have been celebrating new female comic talent for over 11 years, and we have been lucky enough to witness first hand the huge variety of hilarious 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 acts, ventriloquists, magicians, double acts and ensembles… anything, as long as it has a comic twist. As well as performance categories, the Comedy Writing Award seeks to recognise those behind the scenes writing the jokes!

The award categories:
The best all-round stand up performance.
Celebrating the best musical, sketch, character, impressionist or just plain unusual acts!
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.
