Activists do Stand Up Comedy for Charity
8 pm Monday 24th March, Whelans, Dublin
5 euros in advance, 7 euros at the door
“If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.” – Oscar Wilde.
With Stand Up for Humanity, activists from around the country create insurgency humour for a live Whelans audience. Donning stand-up hats for the first time, these activists will make the audience laugh over real issues, such as corporate capitalism, gay rights, police brutality, pro choice politics, water fluoridation, professional protesting, sovereignty, disability, and more.
The activists may be comedy first-timers, but they're not being thrown completely unprepared into the ring. They'll have spent the previous weekend being trained for stand-up by revolutionary comedian, Aidan Killian, and spoken-word genius, Dave Rock.
Join these brave warriors of laughter as they put their egos on the line to speak their truths through humour. Prepare yourself for passion, fun and laughter with soul, from people who give a shit.
Event host is Aidan Killian. All proceeds go to The Caoimh Connolly Trust – providing therapy and care for an intensely autistic ten-year-old boy from Dublin.
TICKETS: €7 on the door.
