Funny Haha Comedy (R)Evolution
Disabled women writers telling twisted tales
A collection of original monologues, stand-up, character pieces, poetry, sketches and short plays for performance.
A powerful, hilarious new force has been quietly growing in comedy during the pandemic…disabled women are doing it for ourselves. Since our initial comedy masterclasses with the incredible Rosie Jones during lockdown, we’ve grown from being a short online course to a dynamic writers’ room for disabled women writing in a range of comedy forms.
Now it’s time to throw off our invisibility and replace it with a cloak of funny and fierce resistance. This is not a book of the same old stories by the same old voices. Instead, we’ve created characters you’ll have never seen, written stand-up you won’t have heard, and delivered hilarious brand-new lyrics and poetry, all with the potential for cabaret, theatre and TV development.
The Funny Haha women’s comedy writers’ room includes:
- Porcelain Delaney
- Honor Flaherty
- Tanya Akrofi
- Vici Wreford-Sinnott
- Karina Jones
- Lynne McFarlane
- India Robertson
- JulieMc McNamara
