Ayesha Hazarika: Girl on Girl – the fight for feminism
WATCH A CLIP HERE
Ayesha will be joined by MP for Walthamstow Stella Creasy for a light hearted discussion and a Q & A for the 2nd half of her hour.
Phew! After Weinstein and #MeToo, women of the world have finally united… for a good old-fashioned bitch-fight! Who cares about smashing the patriarchy when you can go full-on Prisoner: Cell-Block H? So what happened to feminism? Is it too posh? Too white? When did Germaine Greer become Richard Littlejohn? Whose feminism is it anyway? And who asked your opinion, Piers f**king Morgan? Ex-political adviser and regular pundit on Sky, BBC, CNN & LBC, Ayesha analyses the fight for feminism with humour and honesty, and asks – are sisters doing it to themselves?
Dana Alexander- Shady with a Chance of Sunburn
WATCH A CLIP HERE
Dana Alexander offers her unique and irreverent perspective in an industry that is dominated by the privileged and homogeneous – a purple sheep in a group of black sheep.
This is her funny, fresh and alternative perspective on our cultural shift which challenges the status quo because you can’t be “woke” if you were never asleep
In a world of constant surveillance and social media, there is nowhere to hide. New voices have been amplified and we are starting to question everything – “How do you discover a country that already has people in it?”, “What is an alternate fact?” and ” Is time really up?”.
History has always been written by the victors and the truth has been distorted and re branded beyond recognition.
The demonisation of feminism and social justice lets us know who is really in charge and has wondering if things have really changed.
- “Like a gift from the comedy gods” – The Herald
- “Gloriously dark and painfully funny” – The Scotsman
- “An absolute powerhouse performance on stage. Like the fireworks at the end of the Festival she’s tightly timed, mercilessly efficient and very, very loud” – The Skinny
Dana draws her material from raw life experience with an original and hilarious outlook.
She began her comedy career at the age of 18 years old in Canada.
In 2011 Dana moved to the U.K. where she premiered her solo hour at The Edinburgh Festival for which she received rave reviews and nominations including “Best Comic” and “Best International Act” from Chortle and Black Comedy Awards.
It was not long before she then featured on British television on programmes such as “Russell Howard’s Good News”, “Edinburgh Comedy Fest” and “The Culture Show”.
