Crooked Pieces seek Writers for new Comedy Podcast

Crooked Pieces seek Writers for new Comedy Podcast

21st July 2014

Crooked Pieces have been producing work by female writers for the past two years, and back in the spring we decided it was time to extend our world domination plan beyond the stage and onto the airwaves with the creation of our very own comedy podcast.

Being gregarious types, we wanted to do something a bit more sociable than writing a script by ourselves, recording it in a studio somewhere and then casting it out to roam free on the web, so we decided to approach things a little differently. 'And Then She Said A Funny Thing…' brings together female comedy writing talent, from the novice to the seasoned pro, in regular contributors workshops, open submissions callouts a…

Funny Women Awards semi-finalists announced!

27th June 2014

Over the eleven (!) years we’ve been running the Funny Women Awards, we’ve had the great pleasure of witnessing first-hand the hilarious female comedians out there at the start of the careers on the comedy circuit. And what an illustrious bunch they are, with past winners of the awards including Katherine Ryan, Andi Osho and Zoe Lyons (and a runner-up named Sarah Millican, whoever she is).

Since April, Funny Women have been searching the UK and Ireland for up-and-coming female comedians, and boy have we found a few!

We’ve seen everything from an opera singing bag lady, a puppet monkey explaining the beauty of Space, a physical theatre interpretation of Space&he…Read more

Mrs. Brown hits D'Big Screen

Mrs. Brown hits D'Big Screen

23rd June 2014
