Funny Women Comedy Writing Award 2013 Winner - Cassie Pope

Funny Women Comedy Writing Award 2013 Winner - Cassie Pope

24th September 2013

Cassie Pope's brilliant Rocket Men is one of our three shortlisted entries for this year's Comedy Writing Award. We caught up with her to talk writing comedy before Monday's Charity Final at the Leicester Square Theatre!

Here's what Cassie had to say about her script:

"I came up with the idea for Rocket Men during my screenwriting MA last year - one of those "what if" questions that struck me whilst riding the tube. What if, with all our eccentricities and fumbling about, Britain had found itself leading the way in the Cold War space race? The thought made me giggle and I noted it down in my little pad.

When I saw the Funny Women competition…

Funny Women Awards 2013 Winners - Twisted Loaf

24th September 2013

Sketch double act, Twisted Loaf, comprise of Nina Smith and Libby Northedge.

They came from similar shells (one tall and red, one brown and scruffy) - class clowns who enjoyed entertaining their family and friends with characters and quips. They both ended up acting, both with a variety of companies; (Punchdrunk, Kindle Theatre, Odin Teatret, Lost & Found, Soho Theatre...)

They also spend their time teaching drama to small adults (kids) and big adults (actors). The latter profession brought them together on a skills sharing workshop!? Here, they decided to combine their shared skills of clowning, laughing, telling rude jokes and doing impressions of others. Their mutual …

Comic influences include French and Saunders and Smack the Pony. They don't like to get overly sentimental, but would like to thank Rosie's dog, Benjo, for always believing in them.

Funny Women Best Show Award 2013 Winner - Alex Maher

Funny Women Best Show Award 2013 Winner - Alex Maher

24th September 2013

The lovely Alex Maher is one of our three Best Show Award finalists, after we fell in love with her character comedy show Hope and Gloria at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Here's what Alex had to say about reaching the final:

"I have always loved comedy - especially character stuff - but I never felt brave enough to do it. I even wrote a full character show that I didn't perform because I was worried it wouldn't be good enough. Then, over the last few years, a couple of my closest girlfriends started to make waves on the comedy scene with their own amazing work and I was so inspired, I finally put my nerves to one side and went for it!

I'm…

We Double Up on Comedy

We Double Up on Comedy

24th September 2013

Last night we held the very glitzy and completely sold out Funny Women Awards 2013. We had Benefit Cosmetic’s Benebabes on make-upping duty so everybody looked their very best under the stage lights of Leicester Square Theatre.

All the finalists put on some great performances, which meant the judges had to take extra time deliberating over who would win. Meaning we got bonus entertainment from our host and Funny Women Award winner 2008 Katherine Ryan and Funny Women Award winner 2012 Gabby Best performing as who we have come to know as our lifestyle guru here at Funny Women, Marijana.

And now, without much further ado we can announce the winners! Winner of the Come…
