Rape is Real and Everywhere: A National Comedy Tour Launch
Jane Stanton & Kathleen McGee
with Heather Jordan Ross, Emma Cooper, Amanda Smith, Mark B Hughes, Vanessa Woznow, Ryan Lachance
Rape jokes are everywhere. But who are the people telling them? Are they ever OK, let alone funny? What if the people telling rape jokes were survivors?
Rape is Real and Everywhere is what happens when seasoned comedians who have survived rape share their experience and joke it out.
Seasoned stand-up comedians, who are survivors, use humour as a celebration of resiliency to connect with an audience looking for big, cathartic laughs. This explosive show puts faces and stories to a taboo epidemic with nameless victims. It's funny, raw and human.
After three sold out shows in Vancouver, Rape is Real is hitting the road. We’re launching our tour with our biggest show yet at the Rickshaw Theatre.
Produced and performed by Heather Jordan Ross and Emma Cooper and featuring Amanda Smith, Mark B Hughes, Vanessa Woznow, and Ryan Lachance, with spectacular headliners, Jane Stanton and Kathleen McGee!
There’s a slick piece of East Van graffiti that, in elegant cursive, reads: ‘Rape is Real and Everywhere.’ It is, and we can talk and joke about it openly, together.
