Stand Up For Mehdi

Stand Up For Mehdi

People become refugees for lots of different reasons. 

Mehdi lived in Iran. He dared to tell some jokes. Those jokes put his life in danger. He had to escape. 

Then he found himself on Manus Island. For more than three years. 

In this very special event, a stellar line-up of the best comedians at the Festival come together to perform in solidarity with Mehdi and all other victims of Australia's refugee policies.

Hosted by Tom Ballard. A secret line-up of champions. An hilarious show for a damn good cause. 

All proceeds donated to the Human Rights Law Centre.
