Multi-national, all female, quite queer comedy collective trying to smash the patriarchy and steal back stage time from the straight white male.
We are Mariana Feijó, an international comedian, writer and photographer and Maddy Hunter improv comedian and teacher. Together we produce queer, female and immigrant comedy nights all across London. We’ve performed internationally in Berlin, NYC, Amsterdam and Portugal and our work has appeared in the Guardian, the BBC, Duckie at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Soho Theatre, Funny Women, the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York and more.
Word of Muff is a comedy variety show, born in May 2017, where stand up, sketch, improv and character comedy - to name just a few - come together to showcase art made by women.
*While we are called Word of Muff, we warmly welcome all women and non-binary performers. Vulva not compulsory and open to all pubic hair grooming choices.
Past guests include Sophie Duker, Kemah Bob, Bisha K Ali, Lydia Hensler, Athena Kugblenu, Jodie Mitchell and Esther Manito and have appeared in Soho Theatre, 8 out of 10 Cats, The Guilty Feminist, BBC, Union Hall Brooklyn, UCB Theatre NYC, Dubai Opera House and even Marvel Studios writer’s rooms!
