Irish Comedy - Stand Up For Choice
Date: March 28, 2017
Venue: London Irish Centre
The London-Irish Abortion Rights Campaign invites you to 'Stand Up for Choice' - a night of side-splitting comedy in aid of Abortion Rights Campaign and Abortion Support Network.
All proceeds will go to the Abortion Rights Campaign and the Abortion Support Network.
- Abortion Support Network (ASN) provide financial assistance, accommodation, and confidential, non-judgmental information to women forced to travel from Ireland and pay privately for abortions in England.
- The Abortion Rights Campaign (ARC) which campaigns for free, safe, legal abortion by fundraising, lobbying, direct action, establishing partnerships with relevant people and organisations and building awareness through media and communication.
We're well aware that securing abortion rights for Irish women is no joke. But there’s nothing quite like a night of incredible entertainment to bring people together and highlight an exceptionally important cause.
Some glowing praise for our line-up :
Tiffany Stevenson - "She extracts comedy gold' (Evening Standard).
Sara Pascoe - "Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma" (The Guardian)
Aisling Bea - “a born comedian” (Chortle)
Eleanor Tiernan - "The fastest-rising comedy talent in the country"(Irish Times)
Gráinne Maguire - "An engaging and natural performer with deep reserves of excitable energy. Can employ understatement with the dry mastery of a Father Ted script" (Chortle)
Jarlath Regan - "Side-splitting stuff... causes near hysteria in the room" (The Metro)
Stuart Black - "Warm, engaging and dangerously funny." (Rip it up Magazine)
