About the event

Thanks for having me...a necessary spotlight on some of Sydney's best comedians of colour.  With line-up after line-up sticking to the prescribed quotas of tokenism, this show will be a refreshing look at what we've all been missing out on. We're sick of being the only person of colour in the room, let alone on the bill. Thanks For Having Me is a welcomed departure from all the (ah, how do you say...) caucacity and Karen behaviour.  Featuring some of the best established and emerging POC Comedians in Sydney, this is the perfect opportunity for you to show off how 'woke' you are to your mates. Or to just kick back with all your unproblematic friends. We're also making it easier for you to book your comedy room; no more tedious scrolling through instagram - you can just write these names down. Ready for some laughs?  THURSDAY 25th November 9:30pm:  Annaliese Constable (Perfect Child)  Oliver Twist (RAW Comedy Finalist, 2017)  Christina Zheng (Sydney Comedy Festival)  Harry Jun (RAW Comedy NSW State Finalist, 2020)  FRIDAY 26th November 9:30pm:  Bea Barbeau-Scurla (RAT KLUB Comedy)  Nat Damena (RAW Comedy WA State Finalist, 2016)  Guneet Kaur (Yeah The Girls comedy)  Jacinta Gregory (High Maintenance comedy and JACINTERVENTION)  Hosted and Produced by Natali Caro (Seeking Representation and GAG: Queer Comedy Cabaret)

WARNING: There will be more than ONE token person of colour on this line-up. This will be a hate free space. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and any discrimination of any kind, will not be tolerated.
