Shaw's Women

Shaw's Women

19th January 2015

Women frightened George Bernard Shaw, according to the programme notes for this witty double bill of one-act plays from Jane Nightwork Productions.

Yes, ladies scared the great man – but they also impressed him. Like a Wonderbra. Hence two short plays written almost 30 years apart that tackle the comic subtleties of how women negotiate their relationships with men.

As Erica Jong once said, “Men and women, women and men. It will never work.” Except, somehow, it usually does.

'Village Wooing' was written in 1933 and it's very difficult to see what the woman, 'Z' (Madeleine Hutchins), sees in the man, 'A' (Mark Fleischmann). A will, i…

Refuge raise the roof

Refuge raise the roof

15th January 2015

Last night we are pleased to say that a line up of funny women and a great audience raised more than just a laugh for Refuge. In fact they raised over £10,000 for the domestic violence charity. 

We were at Kings Place last night with Benefit Cosmetics and Refuge to see some of the best in female comedy. Tiff Stevenson hosted the show and was very excited to get a chance to see some of her fellow funny women as "we never get booked for the same shows so we rarely see each other" (we are working on it Tiff!). 

Lucy Porter was first up and revealed to us why she thought of herself as a ninja now she has reached her forties before Bridget Chris…

Fascinating Aida are offensively charming on their UK tour

Fascinating Aida are offensively charming on their UK tour

5th January 2015

It’s fascinating how Fascinating Aida get away with their risqué material, but after thirty years in the business, we can excuse them. They wrote the rule book.

With a brief introduction by a posh, sarcastic male voice over who we assume to be the long suffering husband of one of these brilliant ladies, the enter the stage with gusto and let rip at the start of their UK tour, Charm Offensive.

Dillie Keane, Adele Anderson and Liza Pulman make up the titillating trio, reviving us with middle class songs that highlight everyday concerns. Most have topics that are relatable (Old Home and Cheap Flights), but others most would struggle to relate to, or at least claim they …

Get on The Wagon.TV live & online

Get on The Wagon.TV live & online

4th December 2014

On Tuesday I had the happy pleasure of being a guest at The Wagon.TV comedy night in The Library at Shoreditch House. Being a penniless comedian, I was not going to pass up such a rare opportunity of passage into the elusive fortress of beautiful people that is Shoreditch House (although I always wear skinny jeans and act cool (is it even cool to say “cool”?!)), so off I went!

Feeling like a fraud, donning my best ‘I belong here’ face and screeching “dahhhhllliiiiing” at the top of my voice, I made it past the bearded guest list guards and up to The Library on the fifth Floor, checking out the bar for any talent on my way in, of the c…

A Man is not a Financial Plan

A Man is not a Financial Plan

30th November 2014

Money is something a lot of us find difficult to deal with regardless of gender.  As fast as we earn it, we spend it, and saving money is not deep rooted in today’s fast moving consumer society.  Wealth is another whole ball game entirely and means different things to different people.

So we were pleased to come across this quirky book with its retro vintage cover which offers women who are insecure about managing their finances a guide to achieving some peace of mind and security.  The by-line for Mary Waring’s new book, The Wealthy Woman, is ‘A Man is not a Financial Plan’ and, we suspect quite a few women have found this out the hard way! …
