The finalists for the Funny Women Awards 2020 have been announced. This year the competition has been held virtually, and this also goes for the final which will be streamed live from the Comedy Store in London on Tuesday 22nd September at 7.30pm. MoodyComedy is chatting to this year’s finalists. Next up: Fiona Ridgewell.
Hi there! How are you feeling about being nominated as a Funny Women 2020 finalist?
I am very excited to be nominated for the Funny Women final; 2020 has redeemed itself! I’m kidding, it hasn’t, but it’s very nice to be a part of the final!
Tell us a little about who you are as a comedian?
I’m the sort of comedian who when onstage overshares and gossips about her friends, family and anyone I meet at a bus stop! No one is safe.
What does the Funny Women competition mean to you, considering the current comedy landscape in 2020?
The Funny Women competition gives me hope that comedy will return to normal in the near the future, so that I don’t have to work in a supermarket fridge for eternity!
Are you prepared for a final without a live audience?
Ermmmm……yes! I’m sure my fellow finalists will laugh at all my jokes.
What are your hopes for the future of your comedy career?
I would love to be a household name, preferably not just in my own home!
