Mid-way through the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, we joined forces with cult Melbourne Comedy Room Hairbrush Comedy for one night only to present a stellar line-up of women, non-binary and queer comics, to raise money for Light The Way Home.
Hosted by Lauren Bok, the Max Watt’s crowd were entertained by some of the biggest names in comedy like Rhys Nicholson, Rosie Jones (UK), Zoë Coombs Marr, Laura Davis and emerging comics Aurelia St Clair, Charlie Lewin, Han Arbuthnott and Bea Barbeau-Scurla to raise funds for vulnerable performers in the comedy community.
With the Festival Club as the backdrop, enough money was raised on the night to ensure the equivalent of more than 50 rides home for artists. These funds were raised through ticket sales, donations and one-off raffle items, kindly donated by Aussie comedians including Wil Anderson, Mel Buttle, Emma Holland, Tom Ballard and Scout Boxall.
Getting home safely can be challenging for many performers who work late at night and often don’t earn enough money to cover the cost of transport. The Light The Way Home program was designed to provide women, non-binary and other vulnerable performers with a safe way home from comedy venues in or around the Melbourne CBD and, since 2019, has been helping these comedians access a free Uber ride home when they really need one.
With the end of financial year just around the corner, you too can help these artists find their way home safely with a donation to Light The Way Home via the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
