A performance showcase and celebration of young voices in Perth’s local comedy circuit.
Featuring young, queer comedian Charlotte Glance and a premier performance from GELO’s Giggle Gang collective. Hosted by Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa, a first generation Australian Sikh spoken word artist and laughter enthusiast. This event will also include performance showings from participants in the earlier ‘Comedy Starter Kit’ workshop, facilitated by Nadia Collins! Open mic available for more young budding comedians (if time permits).
This event is specifically for voices who may have felt ‘Othered’ in comedy, and gives them a microphone and a low-press chance to conquer their first gig!
