Melbourne – get ready for a hilarious night in celebration of women’s rights

26/09/2017: Melbourne’s favourite feminist comedy event returns to celebrate women’s rights through the power of laughter, featuring comedy royalty Denise Scott, Cal Wilson and Fiona O’Loughlin, as well as crowd favourites Anne Edmonds, Demi Lardner, Laura Davis, Tessa Waters, Double Denim, and more.

Over the past five years, ActionAid’s Frocking Hilarious has built a reputation for its gut-splittingly funny all female line-ups, repeatedly provoking sell-out shows, rave reviews, and a night full of laughs. Produced by Janet McLeod, this year’s show promises to be bigger than ever before, with the full line-up still to be announced. 

ActionAid Australia’s Head of Communications, Holly Miller, said:

“If you’ve not yet been for a Frocking Hilarious night out, you’re in for a treat. The star studded all-female cast of Australian comedians always has audiences in fits of laughter, and this year will be no exception."

“Women living in poverty continue to face injustice each day, but their ability to laugh in the face of adversity is truly inspiring. Frocking Hilarious is about uniting in laughter to celebrate that strength, all while raising funds to support these incredible women to continue fighting for their rights.”

Frocking Hilarious is more than just a comedy gala. It’s a night to celebrate women’s rights through the power of laughter. All proceeds raised go towards ActionAid’s work supporting women around the world to work together to advance their rights. 

Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster: www.act.ai/FrockingHilariousMelb

When: 7:30pm, Friday 17 Nov
