About Celebrity Funny Women

Celebrate International Women's Day with the nation's leading female comedy brand, Funny Women. Sunday 8 March reveal a brilliant new show, Celebrity Funny Women, where a host of female celebrities with no experience of stand up comedy face the challenge of becoming a Funny Woman, coached and supported by some of Funny Women's favourite comedians. Well-loved personalities will step out of their comfort zone and perform a short stand-up set in front of a live audience at the London Studios, in support of international development charity ActionAid.  

Blue Peter legend Janet Ellis is teamed with impressionist Jan Ravens.  PR guru and author (and mother to stand-up Josh Howie) Lynne Franks finds her funny bone with diminutive American stand up TanyaLee Davis.  And sports presenter Gabby Logan is being put through her comedy paces by Funny Women Award-winner, Andi Osho.  Plus music, magic and general mayhem from Mandy Muden, Adams & Rea, and Vaginal Tap.
The celebrities will perform short live sets, alongside footage of their learning experiences, at The London Studios, ITV's Television production complex on the South Bank, where many of the UK's most famous television shows are made.

The charity gala supports international development charity ActionAid's Put Your Foot Down campaign, highlighting the link between violence against women and the spread of HIV and AIDS. ActionAid is asking the UK public to donate shoes as a reminder to the UK government to put its foot down and stop both the threat of violence and HIV/AIDS faced by women in the developing world. Box office proceeds raised on the night will be donated to ActionAid.
