As a stand-up comedy show, this is a production of technical simplicity, which promotes the coming together of a community of like-minded mothers to experience some much needed comic relief from the stress of day-to-day parenting.
This show is more than just a good laugh: we hope that it allows mothers to improve their bond with each other through shared catharsis. We want them to bring their friends, their family, their own mothers…in the hope that by sharing this experience together they’ll be inspired and encouraged to share more with each other and remind each other how to turn their own moments of failure and exhaustion into laughter.
Headlined by Jenny Wynter, there is a talented group of mama comedians performing as MCs and supporting acts, enabling the Funny Mummies Comedy Gala to adapt and change, giving the potential for fresh periodic shows at the same venues.
Whilst this show is aimed at women, and at mothers in particular, it has successfully been presented as everything from a strictly women-only “Ladies Night” to a general family-friendly comedy night, with tickets available to all comers!

This show is technically straightforward with a bare minimum of two vocal microphones plus microphone stands and a basic light set-up. Given the nature of the show we can adapt it to suit most indoor venues – ideally with a raised stage area.
For speed of bump-in/out it will be generally assumed that Funny Mummies will use our own equipment but can integrate with existing infrastructure where appropriate.
Bump in for all sound and lighting requires approximately 1 hour for set up and sound/light checks, finishing no later than 20 minutes before doors open. Bump out requires less than 30 minutes.
