Watford Palace Theatre is delighted to join forces with Funny Women to curate a showcase of the best female comedy talent in the UK today. Come and see an exciting mix of both new and established acts, plus alumni from the acclaimed Funny Women Awards.
Our amazing all-star line-up includes Desiree Burch (2015 winner), Sindhu Vee (finalist 2013), Gráinne Maguire (finalist 2008), Sooz Kempner and hosted by Thanyia Moore (2017 winner).
On this occasion we are thrilled to be joined by Mandy Muden, the brilliant comedy magician that took Britain's Got Talent by storm.
The Funny Women Awards were established in 2003 to increase the female comedy talent pipeline and have become a key fixture on the UK’s comedy calendar. Funny Women has been an important launch pad for many talented performers including Bridget Christie, Katherine Ryan, Sara Pascoe, Susan Calman and many more.
As part of the Funny Women Comedy Event, we are supporting the Red Box Project, that aims to tackle period poverty across the country, by donating Red Boxes filled with sanitary items and pants to local schools to help and support disadvantaged young women throughout their entire period.
There will be a donation box in our foyer, where members of the public can donate sanitary items and find out more about The Red Box Project.
