Jersey’s Martha MacDonald is up against 16 comedians nationwide for the Funny Women Content Creator Award 2022.

The comedy writer and performer has been shortlisted for a ‘Funny Women’ award.

Previous winners include Sarah Millican, Katherine Ryan and Andi Osho.

The comedian is in the running for the Content Creator Award for her videos on TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter.

"When I found out that I'd been nominated and shortlisted for a Funny Women Award I couldn't quite believe it." 

Miss MacDonald adapts poetry with a modern twist, which articulates social observations and anecdotes in a light-hearted way.
