Vintage Funny Women Awards: Judy Garland

Vintage Funny Women Awards: Judy Garland

9th June 2014

Each month I take a look at Funny Women from throughout the 20th Century – stating their case so that you may decide which to vote your favourite Vintage Funny Woman. So far we have looked at Fanny Brice, Lucille Ball and Yorkshire’s Marti Caine and Music Hall star Vesta Tilley. This month I have chosen to focus on the movie star and legend Judy Garland.

"People always thought I was funny. I was never funny. You know who was truly funny? Judy Garland. Judy Garland was funny. She made me look like a mortician." Lucille Ball

I feel slightly biased as I start to write this column. Judy Garland has been a massive part of my life ever since I used to watch he…

Real Funny Women Award Winner's show

Real Funny Women Award Winner's show

23rd April 2013

Funny Women first met Kristin Hallenga at the final of the Funny Women Awards in September 2012. Kris had been nominated for the Real Funny Women Award by the editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine, Louise Court, for the inspiring way that she approached both life and business with a cheeky sense of humour. Kris was the worthy winner of the Award, and was warm, funny and self-deprecating.

Profile: Producer Rosalind Romer pulls no punches

4th March 2013

I am Rosalind Romer, otherwise known as ‘Punchline’. I produce and promote large-scale comedy shows in Edinburgh, bringing the best comedians together to create amazing nights of comedy.

Comedy has always been a part of my life. From watching The Marx Brothers aged four and Blackadder at nine, I moved on to watch live comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe when I was 10. When I was old enough, I worked at the Fringe Box Office during my summer holidays and went to see as many shows as possible. After graduating from Glasgow University, I went on a trip to Australia and the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and snuck in the Adelaide Fringe while I was there.

I returned to the UK full …

Crooked Pieces seek Writers for new Comedy Podcast

Crooked Pieces seek Writers for new Comedy Podcast

21st July 2014

Crooked Pieces have been producing work by female writers for the past two years, and back in the spring we decided it was time to extend our world domination plan beyond the stage and onto the airwaves with the creation of our very own comedy podcast.

Being gregarious types, we wanted to do something a bit more sociable than writing a script by ourselves, recording it in a studio somewhere and then casting it out to roam free on the web, so we decided to approach things a little differently. 'And Then She Said A Funny Thing…' brings together female comedy writing talent, from the novice to the seasoned pro, in regular contributors workshops, open submissions callouts a…
