From feminist drag burlesque to a women’s rights rap, this is activism as you’ve never seen it before! Join these comedians to laugh out loud at the absurdity of sexism in 2012 and poke fun at the idea that campaigning for women’s rights is stuffy, staid or straight laced.

'Joe Wells is a skilled jokesmith who threads great gags through intelligent political material that, whilst razor-sharp, is never particularly angry or dark. As the first gross gags open up into smarter, topical ones it's clear that this is a tightly-structured, well thought-out set. Excellent jokes and sly political comment wrapped tightly in a neat parcel which delivers regular, powerful laughs from a delighted audience. He spins new life out of easy targets like bankers and the BNP with some wonderful imagery' (British Comedy Guide)
'Highly original, inspired and suitably different from the rest of the crowd… brilliantly crafted jokes' (Comedy Central).
'A star of the future... some of the most surprising and thought-provoking material coming from any comedian in his early 20s' (The Guardian).
'A real venom in his delivery seemed to communicate that the numerous laughs that he manages to obtain are just positive collateral to the message he is trying to portray' (Broadway Baby).
