Comedy Vs Racism

Based on the turnout at this week’s Comedy Vs Racism event in Sydney, All Together Now declares this event a success!

Each of the comedians gave a 5-minute performance, and were then joined by the panelists in deconstructing humour, race, and racism. Some of the themes included the expectation that audiences have from comedians of colour, and the power of telling stories about racism in a funny-but-serious way.
