The Wedding Photographer

The Wedding Photographer

2nd March 2015

After sharing the brilliant (and educational) 'Cooking for One' with the crying chef, our friends from across the pond the New York Picture Company have done it again and created a hilarious new comedy short. 

This time we follow a hapless engaged couple trying to find a wedding photographer who can capture their love and happiness. Photographer Julia/Yulia played by Zuzanna Szadkowski (Dorota from 'Gossip Girl', and also 'The Knick' and 'Girls') is overbearing and her assistant, Susannah Hoffman ('House of Cards') is just plain alarming. 

Watch as this couple's innocent engagement photoshoot descends into the inv…

50 Shades of Dunham

50 Shades of Dunham

1st March 2015

After her hilarious 'Girls' parody Mackenzie Watson has been busy writing and starring in a new video that sends up the new film everybody is talking about '50 Shades of Grey.'

Hello Funny Women! I’m back, thank you for having me again. This time I’m poking fun of a little film you may have heard of – '50 Shades of Grey' ring any bells? Of course poor old 50 Shades is an obvious target for parody, but when I decided it would be my next video project, I sought a different angle than just the formulaic spoof.

Here was my process of film selection: first, the trailer (if you haven’t seen it, watch it now, t…

The Daily Show with...?

The Daily Show with...?

18th February 2015

Finding out that Jon Stewart will be leaving 'The Daily Show' made me quite upset. I have such a crush on that man and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I’m going to miss him so much.

Mind you, he barely got the words out before the rumour mill went into overdrive. If he’s out, who will be in? Who’s going to present the show? More importantly: will it be a woman?

I’m not sure why we even have to focus on this in 2015, but we do. So here we are.

The Huffington Post is imploring Comedy Central to choose a new female late night host, and TIME magazine concurs. At present there are no women fronting shows of this kind. Even tried-and-test…

Grandma, I love you

Grandma, I love you

16th February 2015

I hope you don’t mind if I get a bit personal for a mo.

My beloved Grandma recently passed away. I’ve written about her in jest before, and while it was a good-natured ribbing I don’t think she ever got to see it. She definitely won’t see this one. I just felt like I should write about her again, as sort of a goodbye.

Being serious on Funny Women seems a little counter-productive, so I should explain. When she was younger and in better health, my Grandma was a truly funny lady. Her sense of humour didn’t completely match mine, which I think made some situations even more hilarious.

It’s true that she was very unwell in her final weeks, but s…

Catcalling Adult Wednesday Addams

Catcalling Adult Wednesday Addams

16th February 2015

Fans of the Addams Family will be pleased to know that Adult Wednesday Addams is now stalking the streets with her trademark braids and sense of social justice (with a gothic twist). 

Comedian and writer Melissa Hunter was often told she looked like the sinister character Wednesday Addams made famous by Christina Ricci in the 1990's films 'The Addams Family' and 'Addams Family Values'She decided to capitalise on this similarity and create the YouTube series Adult Wednesday Addams

Melissa has hilariously depicted the adult Wednesday going about everyday adult activities, such as apartment hunting, babysitting and learning to drive wi…
