Female comedians aren't funny

You might know her as Dave, the faux bearded, beerswilling caricature of masculinity that led Zoë Coombs Marr to be recognised as one of Australia's most incisive comedic performers. Her genre bending work in theatre and standup explores misogyny, structural sexism, and intersectional feminism, and her razor sharp critique of macho culture has garnered awards and recognition from Melbourne to Edinburgh. 

Join this seasoned comedian at All About Women to experience a brilliant session on gender and comedy. Zoë will rip apart everything you felt you knew about politics, identity, and ideology, you smug bastard.
