Sister Snog Take the Challenge

Sister Snog Take the Challenge

11th July 2011

Last week saw another chapter in the development of the whole Funny Women Challenge concept that we first launched last year with our local charity partner, The Victoria Foundation. This time is was the turn of Sister Snog, a selective business club that connects like-minded women in business and beyond.  Funny Women is a 'Looking-Glass-Sister' and gave it’s time to train and mentor the five Challengers. 

Helping me to train our comedy virgins were several performers including impressionist and voice over supremo Kate O’Sullivan, singer and comic, Sara J Novak, and Bernie Morgan who is the CEO and founder of her own…

Saunders & Balding: Live!

Saunders & Balding: Live!

29th October 2013

If you need any convincing to buy Jennifer Saunder’s new autobiography ‘Bonkers: My Life in Laughs’ (what’s wrong with you?!) or are simply a fan then this is the interview for you. Today from 12 noon you can watch Clare Balding interview Jennifer Saunders at the Southbank Centre book launch on a live stream and then on demand. Or you can have a sneak peek here of the best bits! 

Clare, whose own autobiography, Jennifer told Decca Aitkenhead, was instrumental in inspiring her decision to write the book: "Oh fuck it, I can write a book. I like Clare Balding's book, Dawn [French] has written a book, and I just thought, I'm going to write a book.…

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 …

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…

Walk like a Lady, Dress like an 11 Year Old

Walk like a Lady, Dress like an 11 Year Old

30th October 2013

I’m a woman who loves clothes, shoes and handbags. That’s probably not much of a shock. What does surprise people, when they meet me at least, is that I’m 4’10”. ‘Knee-high to a grasshopper’ - or whatever sickeningly twee euphemism for ‘short’ we’re using these days. The term ‘grown-up’ is applied to me in probably the loosest sense of the word.

With every birthday and awkward shuffle further into adulthood, I know I’m not getting any taller any time soon – or in fact ever. For I am destined to be forever rejected by basketball teams and turfed out of the queue for rollercoasters. Being tiny does have …
