Speaking after the awards ceremony, Hannah told OnTheWight,

“We’re delighted to have won this award – online comedy means we can do our own things and make our own opportunities.”

Drunk Women Solving Crime
Hannah is also part of the hugely successful podcast series called Drunk Women Solving Crime.

As well as featuring many well-known and much-loved guests, from Jenny Eclair to Lucy Porter, there have been sell-out live shows.

Join writer/comedian hosts Hannah George, Catie Wilkins and Taylor Glenn as they welcome top guests from comedians to crime writers to test out their drunk detective skills.

Each episode sees the boozed up panel tackle personal crime stories, solve true crime cases, and seek justice for your listener crimes.

When women sit around and drink we try to solve the world’s problems. So we’re taking back the night and putting our inebriation to good use. You’re welcome.

Not the first award
Now based in London, but regularly returning to Ventnor, this is not the first award Hannah has received.

See our archive of news articles about Hannah’s career which started out with her being named “Officially Britain’s Funniest Woman” by The Sun newspaper.
