A new book, Funny Haha Comedy (R)evolution, has recently been launched by Funny Haha, a collective of female disabled writers who initially met when Little Cog invited Rosie Jones to deliver two comedy workshops in the first lockdown and have continued to develop their comedy writing in a regular writing room.

The book comes following their weekly sessions which they have continued to hold ever since, and collects together monologues, stand-up material, character pieces, poetry, sketches and short plays for performance.

The writers who created the book come from a range of creative disciplines, and are Porcelain Delaney, Honor Flaherty, Tanya Akrofi, Vici Wreford-Sinnott, Karina Jones, Lynne McFarlane, India Robertson, and JulieMc McNamara.

The book was launched at the recent event of the same name held at ARC which marked the first time the collective brought their work together to be performed on stage to a live audience, as well as streaming online.

The book is available from ARC, online and via the Box Office for £9.99 plus £3.50 postage and packing.
