Manchester’s Women In Comedy Festival is Europes only festival dedicated to gender equality and takes place annually in Manchester, UK during October. 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 and visual arts. Described as one of ‘the UK's best comedy festivals’ (The Skinny) the sixth annual 2018 Women In Comedy Festival will take place in October.
Described as a ‘brilliant, brilliant festival’, full to the brim with female comedic talent. The festival is directed by Dulcet Sounds founder Hazel O’Keefe with the support of the crew, our main sponsors Laughology, Laughing Cows Comedy and our supporters, media partners and advertisers.
The festival has grown steadily over the years since the first event in 2013 ‘Manchester’s homegrown Women In Comedy Festival (set up by Hazel O’Keefe) has found its feet in a very short space of time - only three years in attracting the likes of actress Maxine Peake as a patron, joining Jo Enright, Isy Suttie and Jo Caulfield.’ M.E.N
‘It’s a very positive event, attracting massive headline acts.’ (Manchester Evening News)
Actor Maxine Peake joined the team of festival patrons. “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!”
