STAND UP FOR CHRISTCHURCH

This is not a music show but one we couldn’t ignore plugging. In the wake of the terrorist attack in Christchurch, Australia’s biggest stars in comedy are coming together to perform STAND UP FOR CHRISTCHURCH, a massive benefit* show to support the victims and families affected. All proceeds from the shows will be donated to the The Christchurch Foundation’s, Our People, Our City fund.

A stellar line-up of comedians are donating their time on Saturday April 13 at 4.30pm at Melbourne Town Hall, including Arj Barker, Urzila Carlson, Joel Creasey, Frida Deguise, Dave Hughes, Nazeem Hussain, Jimeoin, Tommy Little, Luke McGregor, Matt Okine, Celia Pacquola, Cal Wilson and Steph Tisdell and more.

Stand Up For Christchurch will be MC’d by organiser Nazeem Hussain, who said: “This line up came together miraculously quick. Comedians normally take 48 hours to respond to anything. They all texted back within 2 minutes! There’s clearly so much love to give from the comedy community.”

Roger Field, Chief Executive Officer, Live Nation Australasia: “We’re honoured to be given the opportunity to support Nazeem in producing this very important show, alongside The Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Naz is an inspirational talent who has been able to engage the community to unite for a very special show in support of Christchurch.”

Melbournians choose love over hate, unity over division, laughter over fear.
