Following sell-out shows in Sydney and Brisbane in 2019, ActionAid’s flagship comedy gala is back! Featuring crowd favourites and major up-and-comers including MC Kirsty Webeck, Judith Lucy (certified Australian comedy legend), Claire Hooper (Great Australian Bakeoff), Libbi Gorr (ABC radio and the woman behind TV icon Elle McFeast), Geraldine Hickey (3RRR’s Breakfasters), Rose Callaghan (Best Comedy Sydney Fringe 2016), Gillian English (multi-award winning Canadian comic), Annie Louey (Triple J’s Good Az Friday), musical comedy genius Jude Perl (winner of 3 Green Room Awards and Best Cabaret Melbourne Fringe 2018), and more.
ActionAid ambassador Judith Lucy says: “I want women and men to have equal rights all over the world. I want women to be educated. I want women to have as much power as men… I want that in Haiti, I want that in Australia. I want violence against women to stop… I know that is exactly what ActionAid is trying to accomplish.”

All proceeds from Frocking Hilarious go to ActionAid Australia, a global women’s rights organisation that represents a movement of women standing together to campaign against injustice. The women ActionAid works with around the world are brave, resilient and, in spite of their struggles, often draw on the strength of laughter in the face of adversity.
