TINAtalks #3 - "Funny Talk: Arming up for the feminist battleground"
WEDNESDAY 6 APRIL, 7PM, STATE LIBRARY OF VICTORIA
Presented by YWCA Victoria, TT3 will again feature our fearless host and scourge of misogynists everywhere, Clementine Ford.
Discussing the intersections of humour, sarcasm, sexism and satire will be the following funny females:
REBECCA SHAW - Rebecca is a Sydney based writer and co-host of one of our favourite podcasts, Bring a Plate. She's a fantastically acerbic and witty cultural commentator with work appearing on The Guardian, SBS and lots more. Check out her Twitter feeds, @brocklesnitch and the satirical @notofeminism
JORDAN RASKOPOULOS - Jordan got her start as one of the creators of Australian Network Ten’s sketch comedy program The Ronnie Johns Good Times Campfire Jamboree Half Hour Show Now On Television (The Ronnie Johns Half Hour). The show was nominated for two Logie awards, including “most outstanding comedy series” and was a cult comedy hit in Australia and internationally. She's probably best known as the frontwoman of comedy rock legends The Axis of Awesome and for the flurry of support she received recently for "coming out" as a transgender woman. Watch her funny and brave video on the subject:
KATE MCLENNAN - Kate is an award winning actress, comedian and writer. Her list of achievements, frankly, is too long to list here but we will mention that you've DEFINITELY seen her at a Fringe festival or on Offspring, The Project, Stingers, SlideShow and a "number of sketch shows cut down in their prime." However, we love her most of all on the Katering Show, of which she is co- writer and co-star. Have you seen it? You definitely should have because it's the best.
All profits will go towards YWCA Victoria's work to improve the lives of Victorian women and girls facing disadvantage.
Talk will run from 7pm - 8:30pm with a Q&A component.
