Feminist Stand-up Workshop
Your turn to take the mic! This is a short workshop for anyone who wants to try stand-up comedy or spoken word.
Why feminist? Well, punchlines are often sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic, ableist, fatphobic, and plenty of other things, when they really don’t have to be. This is a supportive, beginner-friendly chance to learn some techniques and put together your own first set.
Please come prepared with 2 minutes of stand-up or, at the very least, one idea on something that is funny to use as a starting point.
You’ll be in good hands: Finnish-Canadian Stand-up comedian James Lórien MacDonald has run Feminist Comedy Night in Helsinki for 3 years and also has run the Feminist Comedy Academy to get new blood on the scene.
