Judith Lucy, Wendy Harmer & Claire Hooper Stand Up For ActionAid

Tickets went on sale this week for the inaugural Rights! Comedy! Action!, hosted by ActionAid Australia.  An all-female line-up of Australia’s funniest women, including Judith Lucy, Wendy Harmer and Claire Hooper, will take to the stage for one “frocking hilarious” night in support of women’s rights and empowerment around the world. ActionAid Australia Executive Director, Archie Law, said that Rights! Comedy! Action! is a unique opportunity to celebrate women’s rights through the power of laughter. “Laughter belongs to everyone. It’s a force that brings people together, all over the world.  Women everywhere laugh together, despite the poverty that so many women in poor countries face. They’re laughing in the face of adversity and this event provides people in Sydney the opportunity to laugh in solidarity with them. The only all-woman line up at the Sydney Comedy Festival, hosted by ActionAid, will not only have you keeling over with laughter, you’ll be helping prove a point – you don’t need dudes on the bill to sell tickets. Down with sexism, up with laughter. Come along and sit down for stand up that helps fight violence for women around the world. All profits will go towards supporting ActionAid’s work empowering women living in poverty to stand up for their rights. Find out more about ActionAid‘s great work in the community here.   Rights! Comedy! Action will be held at The Enmore Theatre on the 9 May 2013. Click Here For Tickets
