Funny Bird Productions is a production company, championing funny, female stories.
It is the brainchild of frizzy-haired comedy buffs Lucy Alwin and Sarah Tattersall, who met training at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts.
Our debut show, 'Me and My' achieved five London sell-outs and a successful Edinburgh run. That was pretty fun. Future dates for our next show, 'Culture, Media and Sport' will be announced... well, when we are allowed to announce them. Stay safe and in touch! Hope to see you soon.
A LITTLE BIRD TOLD US...
2020 IS PRETTY WEIRD, HUH?
Due to the pandemic, we are sitting on our 2020 show for a little longer yet... but keep an ear out for movement in the nest, you might catch the first rare sightings of a trashy political farce! Alternatively, turn on the news, where you will almost certainly see a trashy political farce. Keep safe everybody!
GOODBYE EDINBURGH FRINGE 2019!
You were a blast. 'Me and My' ran at theSpace to multiple sell-out crowds and some of our favourite audience reactions yet! We also managed to get our stage set-up time down to a Funny Bird record breaking 2.5 minutes, and if that isn't evidence enough of our slick partnership, we don't know what else will convince you.*
*Except booking to our next performances.
Prepare to be spoiled at our next shows! We are absolutely delighted to have partnered with French sustainable cosmetics brand Lamazuna, as they launch in the UK!
