My Tickled Pink All Star Female Comedy Night started in September 2018 in Leicester, UK. I set it up because I wanted to see women in ALL the spots on a comedy night. You can’t be what you can’t see. So I did something about it.
This comedy night fits in well with being a single parent and living with Bipolar Disorder. I can rest when I need to and pace my life much better. There is a lot of promoting and marketing involved and organising the line up for each night.
Hows it going so far?
I hold regular monthly comedy nights and I have appeared at the Leicester Comedy Festival three times, the largest comedy festival in Europe. This year the festival went online. I had three well attended shows with 26 female comedians and over 100 in the audience. Leicester Comedy Festival nominated my comedy night for Best Promoter 2021. That was all very exciting and a proud moment.
Throughout most of lockdown I have been running my comedy nights with great support from the performers and audience. It has been the comedy highlight of each month for me.
The future is now.
I am very keen to continue to pay the female comedians a fee for their work and contribute to their travel costs. I want my night to be safe for women to perform and to hire a venue that is accessible for all.
I plan to start live comedy shows again on Thursday 20th May in Leicester which is good news indeed.
I would like to continue to take my comedy night into local communities in Leicestershire. I want to spread the message that women can do comedy. There are so many female comedians out there. Performing comedy can increase your confidence and help in the workplace and all areas of life.
It was a fab evening! Thanks to you Judith and the comedians xxx
Our pleasure. It was excellent - you did yourself proud. One of my friends came too and really enjoyed it so she is off to tell all her friends about it. You should be very proud of yourself. I am very proud of you.
Can’t wait, tickled pink is always so much fun!
Thank you Judith, what a lovely night ❤️????
