A celebration of women in comedy
Jeez Louise turns 12 this year, and we’re again proud to present events across the festival as part of Comedy ConFAB: Conversation and events for people serious about their comedy.

The Comedy Festival is turning 30, and to celebrate Jeez Louise is looking back and looking ahead, assessing what has (and hasn’t) changed for women in comedy. What needs to change? Who is opening the door for whom? Comedy is as subjective as ever, but has the landscape matured?

Rachel Berger (1988)
Kate McLennan (2002)
Jess Perkins (2015)
Monday 11 April, 6.15pm (75mins)
