Treason at the British Comedy Awards

Treason at the British Comedy Awards

17th December 2014

Last night we were at the 2015 British Comedy Awards rubbing shoulders and sharing sushi with the best in British comedy. It was a great evening for funny women, we chatted with Katherine Ryan, spoke with Sandi Toksvig, nattered with Nina Conti, blabbed with Bridget Christie and congratulated Aisling Bea

Jonathan Ross resumed his hosting duties of the 25th British Comedy Awards and as usual no one was safe from his sense of humour, including brother Paul Ross. Joining him on stage were some TV favourites, GoggleBox stars the Parkers were treated to a drink from comedian Joe Wilkinson to keep them hydrated as they presented their award. Dynamo wowed us and Daisy Lowe with his ca…

Sunna Jarman dies aged 40

Sunna Jarman dies aged 40

11th December 2014

On behalf of us all at Funny Women I would like to express how saddened we are by the death of Sunna Jarman who has died aged 40.

I first met Sunna in 2008 when she took part in the Funny Women Awards along with some other very talented newcomers including Luisa Omeilan and Lucy Frederick. She went on to reach the semi-finals in 2010 alongside Rachel Parris, Jess Fostekew and Helen Arney. Glamorous, unfailingly cheerful, kind and generous, Sunna lit up any room she entered even without getting on stage. 

She went on to perform with us, a perfect host for our regular nights in London and Brighton, and as one of the Mixt Nutz sketch group, a great platform for her acting and im…

BBC Three 24/7

10th December 2014

Proposals for the troubled BBC Three channel have just been announced. The channel is to be taken off digital terrestrial, making room for a BBC One+1 service, however this is not the end for BBC Three as it will live on online as a 24 hour channel. 

Damian Kavanagh, who is leading the proposals, compared the new channel to Netflix, saying BBC Three would be "reinvented for the digital age...This is not moving a TV channel and putting it online. This is new. We are the first broadcaster in the world to propose something like this".

However fans of 'Snog Marry Avoid' and 'Don't Tell the Bride' will not be able to breathe a sigh of relief as these …

Raise A Laugh For Refuge

Raise A Laugh For Refuge

8th December 2014

Could it be true? So many of our favourite female comedians, in a one-off January show?!

We have had the great pleasure of working with Refuge over the years at events such as the Funny Women Awards, helping to raise much needed funds and awareness for a charity dedicated to supporting women and children suffering domestic violence.

So it’s with huge excitement that we announce Raise A Laugh For Refuge, a glittering night of laughs with Benefit Cosmetics at King's Place, with an absolutely amazing line-up of female comedians, if we do say so ourselves!

And boy, what a line-up! The show will feature the likes of multi-award winning Bridget Christie, critically ac…

A Guide to Girls' Attitudes

8th December 2014

If you needed proof that the UK is full of interesting and fantastic young women and girls then look no further than Girlguiding. The charity, which we are very proud to have worked with over the last two years, recently released the results of their sixth Girls' Attitude Survey

Collecting the opinions of over 1,200 girls and young women aged seven to 21 inside and outside of Girlguiding across the UK the survey provides a valuable insight into how young people feel about the specific and emerging pressures facing them today and how they envisage their future.

Introducing the survey Girlguiding commented that: "This year’s survey once again tel…
