The Mother & Daughter Tour

The Mother & Daughter Tour

24th November 2014

Making ‘Jana and Heidi’ has been an interesting experience for both of us. We made the show ‘Jana & Heidi’ after mum saw a young comedian in 2013 and whispered to me during his set “Pops, is he meant to be funny? Because I’m funnier than him” and then suggested we make a show together!

Mum had no prior experience of performing, and when we started to devise the show I was surprised how much she trusted me in the making of it. She trusted me totally to explore areas of our relationship that were uncomfortable, and had been difficult for us in previous years, and to look at her own relationship with her mum. 

We started off not real…

Under the Influence

Under the Influence

13th November 2014

There are some instances in which three out of 20 would be a good thing. For example, driving down a road with 20 potholes and only hitting three. Or pulling out the box of fairy lights for Christmas and being relieved to find that 17 of them still work. There are also times when more is definitely more.

A press release arrived in our Funny Women inbox quite recently, telling us about a poll by TV channel Gold to find the ‘most influential British comedy icons of all time’. Seeing as this poll was timed to coincide with Gold’s ‘Monty Python: The Meaning Of Live’ special, it came as no surprise to find John Cleese at the top.

I do love Monty Python &nd…

Call of Feminist Duty

Call of Feminist Duty

7th November 2014

If you weren’t aware, on Tuesday the new ‘Call of Duty’ video game was borne unto the world*, a much anticipated date in the gaming diary. We decided the release of ‘Advanced Warfare’ was the perfect time to launch the second video in the #MoreThanABody web series; a rewrite of Lana Del Rey’s  song ‘Video Games’.
