The Comedy Festival’s annual consideration of ladies’ matters is back with a discussion about agents and the representation of women in comedy. What do agents do? Why get one? How do you get one? Do you really need one? What can you do yourself? And how might women in particular benefit from representation?
Join the debate and help contribute to a new comedy climate of liberty, equality and sorority.
Moderated by comedian Clare Bartholomew, with Judith Lucy, Anne Edmonds, Kevin Whyte (Managing Director of Token Group) and MaryAnne Carroll (Executive Producer - Comedy, Network Seven).
Clare Bartholomew has been performing, writing and producing new work in Australia and overseas for 17 years. She teaches clown master classes, has been a clown doctor working in children’s wards for 15 years. She assists in training and development of clown doctors nationally, and in 2014 completed a three week intensive with 20 other international clown doctors in Barcelona.
Judith Lucy is one of Australia’s most popular comedians. A best-selling author, her work in radio, television and film and her sell-out national live tours have made her a household name.
Anne Edmonds is one of Australia's most exciting new stand up, character and banjo playing comedians. Since bursting onto the scene in 2010, she has brought her exquisitely incisive characters, songs and worldview to TV (Dirty Laundry Live, Back Seat Drivers, It's A Date, Wednesday Night Fever), to clubs and to comedy festivals around Australia and all over the world.
The Wheeler Centre is delighted to partner with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. No jokes.
