    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.

    Katie Mulgrew

    Stand-up

    Lancashire comedian, Katie Mulgrew really likes making people laugh. It’s kinda her thing.

    She gigs all over the country in comedy clubs doing just that, to mostly success.

    She also makes her Mum laugh loads.

    She’s done lots of lovely things whilst being a comedian like being tour support for The Boy With Tape On His Face and Vikki Stone. She has written for  The News Quiz and you can hear her dulcet Northern tones featured on the BBC Radio 2 documentary series, The history of British comedy. She got to be very silly indeed on a couple of episodes of the CBBC show, The Dog Ate My Homework. She recently co-hosted a Tv pilot on ITV2 called Lovefix.

    She won the inaugural 2015 Liverpool Hope playwriting prize and is currently working with the Liverpool Royal Court Theatre and Unity theatre in bringing her play to the stage.

    Katie sometimes hosts her own podcast called ‘The FunnyGirl Podcast’ in where she enthusiastically discusses Musicals with guest stand up comedians. She is  one third of the ‘Animates’ podcast with fellow stand ups Tony Jameson and Jim Smallman about their favourite childhood cartoons.

    Katie has performed three solo stand up shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and is currently working on her fourth show when she’s not consumed with trying to keep the human she has made alive.

    Nice things people said about Katie and her Edinburgh shows

    Edinburgh Festivals Magazine ****    

    “Self-deprecating good humour and great delivery…hilarious and sweet…”

    “…An absloute natural stand up, unpretentious and hugely likeable, and a great writer…A naturally gifted comic who can go all the way…”

    The Skinny ****

    “charmingly honest…delightfully tender and thoroughly entertaining.”

    Gigglebeats ****

    “…enjoyable, lively and very funny.”

    “a pretty great hour of comedy.”

     

    Metro                                              

      “…Comedy courses through her veins…”

    “…Among the best on the Fringe…”

    Chortle                                      

    “Mulgrew is an engaging, likeable presence who doesn’t struggle to hold the audience’s attention. This is a well-structured thoughtful show..radiating warmth”

    Three Weeks                                  

    “…honest, un-cynical comedy that’s rough around the ages but tremendously warm.”

    …Aptly articulated observations and unexpectedly wicked side-lines.”

    “…Refreshingly bold..”
