Stand Up for Bushfire Relief
A star-studded night of stand-up to raise both spirits and bushfire relief funds.
As Australia's bushfire crisis spawns all variety of thoughtful fundraising efforts, a swag of legendary comedians are harnessing the power of some good, side-splitting chuckles, joining forces for the ultimate bushfire benefit gig.
Descending on St Kilda's Palais Theatre on Monday, January 20, Stand Up For Bushfire Relief will see a star-studded cast of comics take to the stage in an effort to raise spirits, while also raising funds for our fire-affected Aussie communities.
Some of the country's top talent has jumped on board, including big-name acts like Hannah Gadsby, Wil Anderson, Rhys Nicholson, Judith Lucy, Frank Woodley, Joel Creasey, Tom Ballard and stacks more. Together, they'll be serving up a jam-packed evening of stand-up comedy, yours to enjoy for $70, with all profits (except the booking fee and GST) going to support the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.
Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster from 2pm on Wednesday, January 8, though you'll want to be quick — with a lineup like that, this benefit is sure to sell out quick sticks.
To get warmed up for the event, you can watch Hannah Gadsby's Nanette on Netflix (and the trailer below).
