100-Word Fringe: “Funny Women” at Assembly George Square

Ended up at Funny Women by accident this afternoon, not that I’m avoiding female comedians – just I’ve been aiming for plays. My understanding side says I should just congratulate Funny Women on doing a sterling job of helping to correct the still horrifying gender imbalance in stand-up. That said, some players involved in this heat had too much of a tendency to stray towards jokes about womanhood – old fodder, and something that won’t make them stand out. Moments of gold shone through, though, especially a thundering Dundee women with a penchant for police ankle bracelets. Hit and Ms.

Funny Women are doing heats, workshops and the awards at Assembly George Square until August 21st.

Tickets: £10 (£8)
