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 …

Intermission Youth Theatre presents H.M.P. Macbeth

30th October 2013

Although based in Kensington, Intermission Youth Theatre have been working with teenagers all over London since 2008.

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…

Where Are They Now - Suzy Bennett

Where Are They Now - Suzy Bennett

3rd February 2012

Suzy’s Funny Women Award win was one seriously impressive feat, given that her winning performance was her 7th ever stand-up gig. Her comedic prowess got her a well-deserved spot on Time Out’s Top 10 Comedians to watch out for in 2006. She’s made a bunch of funny appearances on TV ranging from Channel 4’s The Diets That Time Forgot to BBC’S The One Show.

How did it feel to be crowned by Funny Women in 2006?

I genuinely didn't think I would win as I hadn't done many gigs and the other acts were so good. My mum had come to see me and instead of going out celebrating we went home, got in our 'comfies', watched Coronation Street and had a …
