Are you in-Zayn?

Are you in-Zayn?

30th March 2015

 Plastic man of poop-culture extraordinaire, he’s so shiny that I’m not actually sure he exists.

The only thing I find consoling about One Direction is that I feel - if indeed they do actually function as real human beings - nothing. I’ll repeat and qualify my nothing: I feel nothing. I think this means I’m above society. Or at least I want to file for extradition from a society where a boy-man’s face gets the nation by the knickers but no one cares about the fact that they haven’t invented a hot water bottle that I can drink tea out of whilst I try to cope with my monthly womb cry.

At this point I should probably introduce myself as Mimi &…

Ask Mindy

Ask Mindy

30th March 2015

It’s so easy to rely on Buzzfeed for everything. Where else could people with really short attention spans get their news without nodding off? The Funny Women team spotted a Q&A with Mindy Kaling, in which she gives sage advice to women everywhere. Buzzfeed, for all your faults, today you came through for us. Thanks.

Mindy’s top tips include these gems of knowledge:

• Holidays with your parents when you’re in your 20s make you see them in a whole new light
• Your parents may have terrible advice, but they ultimately want you to be happy
• Dress in a way that makes you feel good, not to please other people
• If you think someone …Read more

Spruce up for Spring

Spruce up for Spring

24th March 2015

March is ending and the clocks are about to ‘spring forward’ (anyone else remember it that way too?), which means it’s time to switch from my autumn/winter wardrobe to my spring/summer wardrobe. That sounds simple, but it’s an ordeal I put myself through twice a year.

Now, I know many of you will be shaking your heads at that. I know people who think putting a coat on qualifies as dressing for winter. Yet it is surprisingly easy to reach a point where you have two wardrobes’ worth of clothes to suit the seasons. Switching between them isn’t something I just do for fun.

First, I’ve got to hoik out and pile up everything I need to put away. If…

Vlogging is going straight to hell

Vlogging is going straight to hell

19th March 2015

In a bid to cover all comedy genres Wildseed Comedy is dipping its toe into horror comedy with a brand new series called 'Phillip Human' starring Channel 4's 'Spaced' Katy Carmichael and popular vlogger Paul Neafcy.

Phillip Human is a lonely, lost soul, raised in isolation and unusual surroundings, before the mysterious disappearance of his parents. Like a refugee from a gothic horror story, Phillip Human lives in a haunted mansion containing untold secrets and with little experience of the real world.

Ironically, he wants nothing more than to reach out to the modern world, to help people and make human connections. His attempts to do so, via vlo…

Women seek GSOH

Women seek GSOH

13th March 2015

I wanted to ignore this ‘story’, I really did. It’s not even much of a story to begin with. But here we go.

A piece in the Metro this week is alleging that men don’t fancy funny women. So far, so old hat. What makes this story different is that this is the result of a scientific study on the subject. Women like men who make them laugh, men like women who laugh at their jokes but aren’t funny themselves.

Ladies, I had to weigh in on this one. I’m sure you understand.

First off – just how scientifically accurate is this study? A closer look at the article reveals that the survey group was 80 people. Now, this took place at the University…
