The fourth Women in Comedy Festival, the only Festival of its kind in Europe is to take place in Manchester Thursday 20 October 2016 to Sunday 30 October 2016. This is a Festival gaining international attention with acts travelling in from as far afield as America and Sweden.
The acts and shows are now all confirmed and a full programme includes many award winning comedians, sketch comedy, political theatre and even a comedic murder mystery show. There are workshops and shows for children and for anyone looking to promote themselves in the best light, there’s the opportunity to have a professional photoshoot. And that’s not all. The Club Feminista - Official Afterparty show is offering an all female line up of DJs and open mic opportunities for all art forms including comedy, music and in support of female sound engineers in the industry, DJing.
Within the festival there will be open mic nights providing the opportunity for burgeoning talent to develop and for the punters to say, in years to come, that they were there at the beginning when a new telly star or award winning comic was performing their first gig. There will be compilation shows, solo shows, previews, exhibitions, live podcasts, workshops, panel shows, training, Q&A’s, comedic plays, improv and sketch comedy.
