TO Canning Vale comedian Matt Storer charity and comedy is a winning combination; he says it makes people feel good, while they are doing good.
“That’s what comedy is all about, and using laughter to tackle big issues and spread awareness makes people feel good while they are helping others,” he said.
Storer is teaming up with Share the Dignity for the #ISTANDUP Against Domestic Violence Comedy Event that will be held simultaneously across the country on October 14.
Share the Dignity is a national charity committed to providing homeless women and women escaping domestic violence with a sense of dignity by holding bi-annual pad and tampon collections which are then redistributed to agencies who support women in need.
The event, held in Fremantle at the Sail and Anchor’s Freemason Lounge, boasts nine local comedians eager to lend their time to promoting dignity.
All money raised from ticket sales and raffles will go towards paying for the funerals of women killed by domestic violence, help towards crisis accommodation throughout Australia and help us get our Dignity Vending Machines out to shelters, refuges, poverty stricken schools and public toilet areas for those living on the streets.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start, complimentary drink on arrival and raffles for prizes.
