Bring Your Own Baby Comedy

A Judgement-Free Zone…where parents can have a laugh without having to Wind the Bobbin Up!

Alyssa Kyria aka The Funny Mummy is a comic and co-founder of Bring Your Own Baby Comedy.

I’m a comedian, but after having my daughter Lola I suffered with PND..and it wasn’t funny. I struggled with breast feeding and felt so nervous to leave the house in case I couldn’t feed her and we both ended up screaming (true story..this happened a lot). So together with my friend Carly Smallman, we set up a comedy show where parents could come and have a laugh..and get their boobs out (preferably to breast feed, but we don’t judge).

Being a new parent is scary and can be very lonely. Yes they are cute, and yes you love them…but (for me anyway) I felt like I had been hit with a sledgehammer of a new reality and I didn’t cope well. I felt like I had lost myself and couldn’t seem to find my way back to being me again. Once I climbed out of the hole of PND, I got together with a friend and fellow comic Carly Smallman, and we decided to try something a bit bonkers. 

We wanted to create a safe space for new parents to come where they could breast or bottle feed without judgement, change a bum or (controversial) have a glass of wine if they want to and most of all…. Have a laugh! Comedy has always been important to me, and we thought that getting out of the house, and having a laugh might help other parents who had been through the mill as I had. So ‘Bring Your Own Baby Comedy’ was born (scuse the pun). 

We provide the best comedy in the UK at daytime shows for parents and their babies. When I became a Mum, I found that I was ‘mumsied’ a lot – so we didn’t want to do that – our comics use adult content as the show is for the parents. I personally, was about to jump out of a window if I had to sing ‘Wheels on the bus’ while sitting cross legged with a group of exhausted and fake smiley Mums one more time! So nursery rhymes are banned. 

If you fancy a bit of a break from the standard baby group, then come and see us for a laugh. Our shows are monthly at the Crouch End Picturehouse. You can get all the info at
