As winter draws in, the cold nights are undoubtedly best spent curled up on the sofa, in front of the TV, drinking a chilled glass of Lambrini with the girls.

In contrast with comedian Lee Mack’s recent claim that “women can’t do stand-up”, we believe the best way to keep entertained during the winter months is by watching award winning British female comics do what they do best!

Personal favourites have to be the brilliant, Miranda Hart and Sarah Millican who demonstrate the strength and success of women in stand up. Their unique style focuses on the relatable comedy of everyday female life. We can guarantee that a night with either of these two ladies will result in hours of girly giggling.

As well as these hilarious ladies, who are your favourite comedians? Does Victoria Wood have you crying with laugher or does Ruby Wax’s one liners make you laugh out loud?
