Beyonce: The Mrs. Carter Show

Beyonce: The Mrs. Carter Show

3rd May 2013

What was my opinion on the Mrs. Carter Show, I hear you cry. Well, it’s a pants tour name for a start. Was Queen Bey so busy overseeing her empire, birthing a child (whom I have an extremely unhealthy fascination with) and penning the likes of 'Independent Women' and 'Single Ladies', that she just completely missed the female emancipation memo…?

But moving swiftly on: her vocal abilities - she opens her mouth and harp-strumming angels soar out. Her dancing - she can gyrate faster than a pneumatic drill, it's a vision to behold. I bet she can do an entire Insanity workout without even breaking a sweat. Her beauty – breath taking. There is simply n…

Good Time Girls on Film

Good Time Girls on Film

30th October 2013

The first comedy film I made was twenty years ago at university. I went through the course feeling completely equal to my male counterparts. Then I overheard a comment from a local videographer, who was working with some male friends of mine. My sister and I had decided not to work on a project. His response to this was “It doesn’t matter, they didn’t look like good time girls anyway”.

GOOD TIME GIRLS?!

There I was, believing I could be taken seriously as a comedy film maker, but because I wasn’t sexy enough for him, I wasn’t needed in the project. I went straight out and wrote the synopsis for my film 'Sluts On Heat.' The opening title …

Emma Packer: A London Mini-Tour!

Emma Packer certainly managed to fit a lot in this summer. Not only did she take an hour-long show up to Edinburgh Fringe - she introduced an entire cast of weird and wonderful creations in the process! If you missed out on seeing Emma this summer, never fear - she’s bringing herself and her ménage of kooky characters to London with a mini-tour of gigs.

What’s The Point In Living If You Can’t Cha-Cha-Cha? is a whirlwind 60 minutes featuring one actor and eight very different individuals, and combining live performance and video sequences. From chavvy wordsmith Amy Jones to Susannah Cavenaugh, an Australian TV saleswoman with a penchant for Tupperware, no two c…

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. What you would never have guessed simply to look at her is that 27 year old Kris suffers from breast cancer, which has reached stage four. There is no stage five.

Kris has used this devastating news to make it her mission to inspire a new generation of young women to check their breasts. Kris is passionate …

Your Weekly Release: LA Life and Lessons Learned

Your Weekly Release: LA Life and Lessons Learned

18th October 2013

After my debit card declined at Starbucks, I stepped out of line sheepishly, and took a little gander at my checking account. 82 cents. There it is. I refreshed the page. There it still is. This can’t be. I must have some money coming in. This can’t be my life. Surely in 33 years, I’ve learned to budget. Surely I didn’t go to Starbucks and get denied trying to buy a tall Pumpkin Spice Latte. They always tell you to live in the moment, and when it comes to money, I really do. My present self has zero regard for my future self.

I left Starbucks, and walked outside. I will say this about being broke. You really have to start appreciating the little things with 82 …
