In February you can expect to hear the comical delights from the following talented women comedians:
Lucy Heard is a show off who forgot how to show off. Since 2010 she has been working hard to remember how by trying out tap dancing, pretending to be a pirate and driving far too fast.
Regularly found compèring shows in South Wales and the West Country in a variety of disguises, Lucy is now venturing in to the world of stand-up comedy where she has to be herself and is, admittedly, a little bit terrified!
Described as “charmingly leftfield with a warm, oddball sense of humour”, the award-winning Viv Groskop performs stand-up sets that are playful and slightly unhinged. She’s the queen of infectious enthusiasm and a rockin’ MC. But possibly the worst rapper ever.
“Viv is brilliant. But I still quite like Billy Connolly” - Jo Brand
“Inventive and hilarious. My favourite new act” - Lucy Porter
“Fresh and exciting” – Sara Pascoe, Channel 4′s Stand Up for the Week
Becky Brunning is an established character comedian who is branching into the stand-up scene. She wagon-wheeled onto the comedy circuit in summer 2012 with her quirky, engaging style, making it to the Funny Women semi-finals within her first couple of stand-up gigs.
Her one woman show The Olympic Gene, which sees Becky (the real-life great-granddaughter of 1912 Olympic gymnast William LeBeau), officially launching her Olympic bid, had a critically acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe Festival run. It has been performed all over the UK, including a guest appearance at BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and further afield, from Minnesota to Montana in the US.
“This show is one of those lovely, unexpected, comic gems… There are not many comedy shows that can make you cry at the same time as making you laugh – but this one did just that.” The Scotsman
Rosie Wilby was a Funny Women Finalist in 2006, and has taken four solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe, including 2009’s award winning The Science Of Sex. She has appeared on Radio 4′s Loose Ends, Midweek and Woman’s Hour and has headlined gigs at Sydney Mardi Gras.
She co-wrote and co-starred in the short film The Bride and Bride at the 2011 London Lesbian And Gay Film Festival, and presents Resonance 104.4FM’s LGBT show Out in South London every Tuesday at 6.30pm.
