The Wheeler Centre presents Nailed It!, a current events extravaganza featuring Australia’s best leftist comedy talents:
James Colley is a Young Walkley nominated satirist, a writer on The Weekly with Charlie Pickering, researcher on Gruen and head writer of SBS Comedy’s The Backburner.
Zoë Coombs Marr is a performer, writer, artist and comedian. She is one-third of theatre company Post, whose work includes Oedipus Schmoedipus, presented at Belvoir for Sydney Festival 2014.
Dee Fidge is a Melbourne-based writer and comedian. She writes regularly for SBS Comedy, ABC’s The Drum, The Vocaland Archer magazine. You can read her brain farts on Twitter at @figgled.
Roj Amedi is an editor, writer, broadcaster and strategist. She writes and speaks on a range of issues including politics, public policy, the arts and culture.
Aaron Gocs is a stand-up comedian.
Gillian Triggs is former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, and the new Chair of Justice Connect, a non-profit dedicated to connecting people locked out of the justice system with free legal help. She is also Vice Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Melbourne and Vice President of the Asian Development Bank Tribunal.
There’s good news and bad news for prospective Nailed It! attendees. The bad news: Gillian Triggs is unable to attend to perform her classic intersectionality routine. The good news: a worthy replacement has been enlisted:
Clementine Ford is a Melbourne-based writer, speaker and feminist thinker.
As a one trick pony Ford’s comedy will be confined to the evils of maleness: toxic masculinity, the evil patriarchy and the “reality” of “rape culture”.
It’s an event well worth attending … for lefty simpletons.
