'No Apologies: Women in Comedy claiming their space, finding their voices and telling their stories' is the debut book by journalist and comedian Joanne Brookfield.
Featuring interviews with more than 50 women in comedy – including Judith Lucy, Denise Scott, Urzila Carlson, Wendy Harmer, The Kates (McLennan and McCartney), Fiona O’Loughlin, Jo Stanley, Felicity Ward, Rachel Berger – No Apologies is about the power of all women’s voices and creating the change we want to see in the world.
‘No Apologies: The Chat Show’ brings the book to life on stage, talking with some of the interviewees about issues raised in the book – issues which are relevant to all women, not just those working in comedy.
Sold-out during the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Colony of Hellcats reassemble once more for some feisty, femmo fun. Come join the conversation! One show only.
