Melbourne International Comedy Festival and The Wheeler Centre proudly present
This Is What A Comedian Looks Like
Men may outnumber women in stand-up comedy, but on large and small screens as well as on stage, they definitely don’t out-funny them. Jeez Louise is here to embolden, inspire and grow the population of ladies in showbiz comedy.
Join us for a panel discussion that will explore the potential and prejudice, frustrations and friendships that define the professional world of female comics. The aspiration to liberty, equality and sorority is not quite met yet.
The panel features national and international ladies in the biz - Celia Pacquola, Hannah Gadsby, Clare Bartholemew, Adrienne Truscott (USA) and Sara Pascoe (UK).
Jeez Louise Workshop
As part of Jeez Louise, the Festival will run a 2-day program of exploration, insight and discussion.
Sunday 6 April & Monday 7 April
