At Funny Women HQ we like to make sure you are all paying attention. If you have been reading Miranda Dawe's brilliant Vintage Funny Women series you will know all about the male impersonator Vest…

              

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!

WHAT PAST ENTRANTS SAY:

"It was undoubtedly the most inspiring evening that I've had the pleasure to perform at!" Katie Pritchard A.K.A K-Pizz

"Many thanks for making it such a supportive and friendly night. It is always great to see how many talented women there are out there." Hannah Silvester

"I have honestly never experienced such a night of powerful all female comedy - bloody brilliant!" Lisa Payne, Pearl and Maybe
