Women’s Health Week Comedy Gala 2020

Streaming live around Australia Saturday 5 September – 7:30pm (AEST)

The 4th annual Women’s Health Week Comedy Gala is back – and this year will be streamed live right around Australia.

This year, more than ever, we all need a laugh and Jean Hailes for Women’s Health is delighted to be able to share the laughs with even more women.  

This one-night-only event celebrates women supporting women in a laugh-out-loud night of comedy and music. Hosted by Claire Hooper, this fun event will feature the impressive talents of Celia Pacquola, Cal Wilson, Steph Tisdell, Zoe Coombs Marr and Jude Perl. Produced by Janet McLeod.

Performers will be live on stage in Melbourne (except Steph Tisdell) and streamed live on a high definition video conferencing platform. Ticket holders will receive a personal link prior to the event, which gives you the option of watching the event on a smart TV, phone or laptop.

There will be no topic off limits as these women tell it like it is!

Women’s health is powerful stuff and Jean Hailes’ annual Women’s Health Week (7-11 September) is dedicated to improving the health of all women in Australia. Special thanks to our partner in mental health, Liptember, who also believe in the power of a good laugh.

Date:  Saturday 5 September at 7.30pm (AEST)
Where:  Live Streaming in HD on your phone, in your home, sporting club or community hall
