We Are Funny People with Headliner Bethany Black

  • Farr's School of Dancing 17-19 Dalston Lane London E8 3DF United Kingdom (map)

This will be the first in a series of "We Are Funny People" shows inspired by a Chortle article about diversity in comedy penned by our MC, the token straight white male that is Brendon Burns.

We're going to hear from a spectrum of cracking comics, delivering unique perspectives and brilliant comedy.

Headliner Bethany Black is a "goth lesbian transsexual recovering alcoholic" who is a kind of muse to the "We Are Funny People" series since being name-checked by Brendon in the original article.

American Tim Renkow has cerebral palsy and a wicked sense of humour, a clutch of comedy awards and TV credits, not least the superb "A Brief History of Tim" on BBC3.

Allyson June Smith is one of the finest comedy acts to depart Canada and bring the funny to the UK, a wonderful comedian we are delighted to have on this special bill.

The bill is packed with fabulously funny people yet one way or another are not all of these:

  • Male
  • Straight
  • White
  • Fully Able-Bodied

And if you're still not sure where we are coming from with this show, check this Huffington Post article, by Brendan Burns. Then come and join us for a wickedly funny, wildly diverse night of comedy in November.
