Single ladies, watch this: #Desperate

Single ladies, watch this: #Desperate

10th July 2014

Any females who are currently single – and have been for a while – might find Maddy Anholt’s new show a little uncomfortable to watch. I myself can claim to be, erm, proudly independent for pushing four years now, and this painfully honest take on dating and the single life made me want to sink into the seat cushions.

#Desperate is a wry look back at some of the more unattractive, self-centred and frankly vile fish in the sea that Maddy’s encountered through internet dating.

Even the men in the audience will recognise the types. It’s really easy, as Maddy has a clear talent for acting and impersonations. She recreates each thoroughly awful man with mi…

Gabby Best is Medical Marijana

Gabby Best is Medical Marijana

9th July 2014

I just bloody love Marijana, health and happiness guru to the stars!  So to get 50 minutes of her in one go was bliss!  Even though I can recite a lot of her material verbatim having seen her so many times since Gabby Best won the Funny Women Awards in 2012, I never tire of it, ever. Why is this, you may ask?  No, not because of brand loyalty here – she is just bloody funny.  Or, as Maj herself would say, "bloordy foony".

Sometimes performing through your number one character is the best (oops sorry…) way forward.  There is a lot more to come from Gabby (ahem…) Best than Marijana of course, yet the hapless eastern European with he…

30 Million Minutes of Dawn French

30 Million Minutes of Dawn French

4th July 2014

The title of Dawn French's first one woman show, ‘30 Million Minutes,’ is approximately how long the 56 year old comedian and actress has been alive. I have adored her for approximately half that time. I was very lucky to secure tickets to Dawn’s homecoming gig in Plymouth as it sold out extremely quickly.

I have been fortunate enough to meet my hero twice and found her to be friendly, charming and encouraging of my fledgling comedy career. Her personal life has been in and out of the press but she told her own story with her autobiography 'Dear Fatty' a few years ago.

'Fatty' is the nickname she affectionately uses for Jennifer Saunders

Anna Morris: Would Like to Thank

Anna Morris: Would Like to Thank

2nd July 2014

I love to see acts that I have met through the Funny Women Awards grow and develop.  I first encountered Anna Morris as half of comedy duo Morris & Vyse back in 2009 when they reached the semi-final stage and since then Anna and Beth have taken different and equally compelling directions.

In her second solo show, Anna introduces us to a roster of weird and wonderful characters who battle it out for the title ‘Woman of the Year.’ The ‘ceremony’ is hosted by  last year’s ‘winner’ – viral internet sensation (with over 90,000 hits on YouTube) ‘Georgina the Bride’ (dubbed ‘Britain’s Worst Bride' by th…

Lucy Frederick gets her Claws into Comedy

Lucy Frederick gets her Claws into Comedy

30th June 2014

I confess to episodes of acute anxiety and to an array of unpleasant involuntary physical side effects, so it was easy to identify with the curse of ‘anxiety claw’ as so humorously described by Lucy Frederick!

This is the second of Lucy’s full length shows for the Edinburgh Fringe. Last year’s show was all about ‘being cool’ and this is the antidote to the anxiety that is no doubt caused by the effort of trying to look good all the time. Lucy explores some of the more angst inducing moments of her life with easy professionalism, proving that you really can overcome the trials and tribulations of everyday life with a dose of humour. You are at one wi…
