Bringing communities together through laughter
Not content with writing, producing and performing one-woman shows, Jenny is also the founder of Funny Mummies™ – a vibrant online community designed to improve women’s mental health through comedy.
As a passionate mental health advocate, Jenny wants to use laughter as a healing tool to bring mums together through shared experiences.
As a mum of three, and step-mum of another three, Jenny knows that family life isn’t always like the Brady Bunch. And it doesn’t always define us. (Or not all of us, at least.)
That’s why Funny Mummies™ doesn’t just get mums in the audience laughing hysterically. It also empowers mums to get out of their comfort zone and strut their stuff on stage.
Funny Mummies produces live stand-up shows performed by mothers for mothers. In September 2020, the Funny Mummies™ Comedy Gala was the first post-COVID-19 tour to hit the road in Queensland, and has now reached nearly 50 remote communities and more than 4,000 audience members.
(Sometimes, the audience was bigger than the town population itself!)
Funny Mummy: a memoir
Jenny Wynter’s memoir “Funny Mummy” was released in 2019.
Within its pages, Jenny shares her experiences navigating life's tough moments by using comedy as pain relief. Because while her life certainly hasn’t gone to plan, there’s been one constant throughout – laughter.
Jenny shines light into the darker parts of life, from grief and divorce to parenthood.
This funny, poignant, and insightful read will leave you inspired, leave you lighter and most importantly, leave you laughing.

Joy generator, audience connector + improv queen
Jenny Wynter is pure joy.
My face hurts.
More than laughs, Funny Mummy is also quite the page turner. In fact, Jenny moves through life with such passion, energy, humour and heartbreak, I needed ventolin to keep up. Fabulous!
What a talent!! Truly, I was on the sideline of this [TEDx] stage and I’m still in awe of Jenny’s talent – WOW, WOW, WOW!!!
