Funny Women Players and Friends Charity Show

Funny Women Players and Friends Charity Show Funny Women Players and Friends Charity Show Funny Women Players and Friends Charity Show

25th January 2015

If you are a fan of the improv genre of comedy, and love a bit of television's 'Whose Line is it Anyway?' then come along to a fantastic evening in the company of our very own Funny Women Players and a few of their funny friends, all in aid of charity.  

Funds raised on the night will be donated to The Victoria Foundation, which provides life enhancing medical assistance and happens to be our very close neighbour, here at Funny Women HQ in Richmond. The charity’s objectives are very broad, but firmly medical, with the overall aim of improving lives where there is an opportunity to do so - either through medical provision or by ensuring that those young people destined to become the future generations of doctors are not thwarted by financial restrictions.  Proceeds from this event will help to fund mobility aids for disabled children. 

So join the Funny Women Players and go on an improvised journey and watch them literally make it up as they go along with suggestions from you, the audience. And they'll be joined with some very special celebrity guests! What's not to like about that?



DATE: Sunday 25th January 2015

This unique event is made up of a series of workshops that will help you to improve your confidence, use your voice properly, improvise when the going gets tough, stand up for yourself and even dress for the part.

Laughter is obligatory throughout the day because we know that when you laugh, your whole being relaxes and the world feels like a better place. So join us for a day of self-improvement guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and everybody you do business with too.
