The diversity-focused stand-up showcase is back for its first outing of 2021.
After the year that was 2020, we could all use a bit of a chuckle. And there'll be plenty of those to go around when the latest edition of Lemon Comedy delivers a big dose of diversity to the Fringe Common Rooms on Thursday, March 18.
The hilarious Annie Louey hosts a jam-packed night of stand-up, championing inclusivity across a lineup of female-identifying, non-binary and LGBTQIA+ comedians, artists living with a disability or mental illness, and comedians of colour.
Kicking off from 7.30pm, you'll catch a broad range of comedic talent serving up the laughs, headlined by award-winning cabaret star and songwriter Selina Jenkins (BOOBS). Also in the side-splitting mix are writer and comedian Alistair Baldwin (Lame), RAW Comedy Victorian finalist Sashi Perera, award-winning stand-up act Sonia Di Iorio, and multi-talented artist and performer Heather Joan.
Audiences are in for a few surprises, too, not least of which is a top-secret international star being streamed in live from the UK. This will be the first 2021 outing for the Lemon Comedy showcase, so you'd best start warming up those cheek muscles — it's going to be a big one.
