An abundance of top notch comedians are coming together this month to raise much needed funds for Dublin Rape Crisis Centre.

The online comedy fundraiser: “The Big Laugh-In for DRCC,” is happening on Friday April 23, and will include performances from some of the biggest names in Irish comedy.

Acts will include: Maeve Higgins, Jarlath Regan, Eleanor Tiernan, Gearóid Farrelly, Catherine Bohart, Alison Spittle, with international guests Fern Brady and Sikisa.

Comedy Safety Standards is a new organisation that is campaigning to create a safer and more inclusive comedy scene in Ireland.

The performer-led organisation provides training for clubs and promoters to raise awareness of the challenges comics face and giving advice to new and existing performers.

Alison Spittle, a founding member of CSS, said they want to provide support, after incidents of abuse came to the fore over the last year.

All the money from ticket sales will go directly to the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre.

TV’s Alison Spittle is among the 100 plus acts who’ll perform at this year’s festival

Ticket prices start at a donation of €12, and are available online at www.idonate.ie/comedy.
