Dear Friend —
All Together Now’s hottest event Comedy vs Racism is back again this year, by popular demand! Wherever you live in Australia, if you happen to be in Sydney on 23rd March, please come along. We look forward to seeing you there!
Akmal Saleh, Jen Carnovale, Suren Jayemanne, Bish Marzook, and Benny Eggmolesse, will join forces to bring you the freshest and funniest stand-up in a showdown against racism.Following the performances, comedian Jennifer Wong will host a chat with the performers, to get their hot takes on issues around discrimination, politics, and diversity.
If you’re in Sydney on Tuesday 8th March, come along to “Comedy vs Racism”. All Together Now has organised this event in partnership with the City of Sydney as part of the Living in Harmony festival. The event begins at 7PM.
Comedy meets commentary in Comedy vs Racism, when three of Sydney’s funniest writer/performers are joined by an academic activist, a lawyer, and a columnist who writes about race and feminism.
Join us for an hour of laughs followed by a Q & A, with Tasnim Hossain, Suren Jayemanne, Bjorn Stewart, Professor James Arvanitakis, Pallavi Sinha, Ruby Hamad, and host Jennifer Wong.
Between comedy performances, the comedians and panellists will share their thoughts on the role of comedy when it comes to racism in Australia.
Together, we’ll be asking: How powerful is a punchline when it comes to standing against racism? What can comedy do about everyday racism? What conversations do we need to have as Australian audiences, comedy makers, and the media? And can we laugh while we’re having them?
