Some of the biggest names on the Australian stand-up circuit are coming together for a benefit gig in support of marriage equality.

On stage at the Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne on the evening of Thursday, September 21, the Australia Says Yes! Comedy Gala will feature such funny folk as Frank Woodley, Dave Thornton, Geraldine Hickey, Danielle Walker, Kirsty Webeck, Lehmo, and Sammy J & Randy. Together, they'll present their best material while promoting equality and fairness in the lead-up to the government's postal survey on same-sex marriage.

The one-off gala is being presented by the Equality Campaign, who'll use the proceeds from the event to help push for a Yes vote. Of course the fact that we're even going ahead with this expensive, unnecessary poll isn't funny in the slightest. Still, this seems like a pretty great way to show the Yes camp some support.
