Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Wheeler Centre present
Sat 16 April
The Wheeler Centre
176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne
The Comedy Festival's annual consideration of ladies' matters is back. This time we've joined forces with the Wheeler Centre to discuss the ‘whys’, ‘wherefores’ and ‘hows’ of programming female comedians across a variety of media.
An exclusive audience will join a distinguished panel of experts as they take you behind the scenes of Australian comedy programming.
The forum will investigate the various media in which funny women work and ask how they scored their jobs. Who hired them? Where did they start? How can YOU get your foot on the first rung of the comedy success ladder? Funny women aren’t just up on the stage, they also bring the laughs behind the scenes; writing, blogging, directing and producing.
The event will be moderated by comedian DeAnne Smith (Canada) and will feature female head honchos of their respective professions, including Amelia Chappelow (Radio Producer, Triple J), Kate Langbroek (Actor and broadcaster, NOVA 100), Pam Barnes (Executive Producer - The Circle) and Susan Provan (Melbourne International Comedy Festival Director).
