    The Women in Comedy Festival

    Comedy

    Described as one of ‘the UK's best comedy festivals’ by the Skinny, Greater Manchester’s Women In Comedy Festival is Europes only comedy festival dedicated to gender equality.

    A ‘brilliant, brilliant festival’, full to the brim with female comedic talent. ‘Get it booked, get on down’ is the recommendation from City Life.

    The Women In Comedy Festival, produced by Dulcet Sounds, takes place annually in Greater Manchester, UK during October.

    ‘Set up as a reaction to the sidelining of women comics by club owners back in the day, Manchester’s homegrown Women In Comedy Festival (set up by Hazel O’Keefe) has found its feet in a very short space of time - attracting the likes of actress Maxine Peake as a patron, joining Jo Enright and Isy Suttie.’ M.E.N

    Building on the success of Laughing Cows Comedy Night, the Festival launched in 2013 as a volunteer-led festival presenting both established and up and coming talent across the spectrum of stand up comedy, comedy theatre, improv performing arts, film, spoken work, comedy writing and visual arts.

    The fifth annual 2017 Women In Comedy Festival will take place from Thursday 19th until Sunday 29th October 2017

    Actor Maxine Peake joined the team of festival patrons last year. “I’m proud to be supporting the UK Women in Comedy Festival as a patron. A festival filled with laughter combined with feminist principles taking place in the North … what’s not to support!”

     

    The festival has grown steadily over the years since the first event in 2013 and encompasses solo shows, open mic events, a comedy writing competition showcases, galas, symposiums, networking events, training, panels, debates and workshops. The Women In Comedy Festival also offers training and mentorship opportunities with industry professionals and other leading creative organisations.

     

    ‘It’s a very positive event, attracting massive headline acts.’ (Manchester Evening News)

    'Fearless, provocative and very funny" Scotsman

    For over a decade Ria has been entertaining both UK and international audiences with her dry wit and the occasional song. Her charm and intelligence allows her to get away with anything from the most audacious routines to subtle wordplay. A versatile performer she can as easily MC as headline, and has been seen at clubs around the world from Glasgow to Singapore, Seattle to Australia.

    EDINBURGH
    Ria has been a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since 2011. Her 2014 show “School of Riason” was nominated for the Amused Moose Laughter Awards, contained one of Dave TV’s Top 10 Jokes of the Festival, and was commissioned by BBC Radio 4 as a half-hour special to be recorded and aired in 2016. Previous projects include her critically acclaimed shows “Thpethial” (2013) and “It’s Not Easy Being Yellow” (2012), which travelled to the Brighton Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, and Singapore International Festivals. Her most recent show but one, Taboo Raider (2015), was filmed for DVD release and can now be seen on the NextUp online comedy streaming platform. And her most recent,  Ria Lina: Dear Daughter (2016) won Best Comedy Show at the Greater Manchester Fringe.
