The heat is on at Funny Women. We have launched our annual Funny Women Awards and are currently running the first heats across the country to find the best new talent in female comedy. We have held heats in London and Exeter so far. I am currently in Dublin, where we ran a double heat at Chaplin’s comedy club. We will repeat the same thing tonight to get through what Ireland has to offer us before jetting off to Manchester for a bumper comedy experience at the Women in Comedy Festival.

While we are in Manchester we will be not only holding heats at Tribeca, but over the weekend we will be taking our Time of the Month comedy networking and scratch event up north for the first time! After that we’re back in Perth, Scotland, then back in London, then Wolverhampton, then London. It’s lads on tour guys.

But that’s not all. The Funny Women Awards have a new charity partner. We are proud to be raising money for UN Women’s He For She Campaign – has made famous by Hermione Granger, I mean Emma Watson. But I think Hermione would be down with it

Want more? Kate has a new gig taking over the producing of the Funny Women monthly showcase at Brighton in her quest for comedy domination
