Live review: Funny Women Final

The fourth act in this year's Funny Women Stage Award final, Charlie George, commented soon after coming onstage that "No-one is straight any more." She had clearly being watching from the wings or chatting to her fellow finalists as almost all of this year's Funny Women final line-up were either gay, bisexual, transsexual or pansexual. It's probably a reflection of both the comedy world and the "real" world and good to see that people can be open and honest about their sexuality at a time when society also feels like it is in danger of becoming more closed.

Funny Women final 2019 review

With so much of today's best comedy, especially on TV, coming from women, it seems more ridiculous than ever to think of female-led comedy as a sub-genre. And judging by the impressively strong final in this year's Funny Women award, there are plenty more talented comics waiting in the traps to keep redressing the industry's historic gender imbalance.
