On July 9th, Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre will play host to some of Australia’s hottest comedians, singers, and media personalities, all coming together in support of those affected by the mass shooting at gay nightclub Pulse on June 16th.
Part glittering show of solidarity between the Australian and American gay communities, and part concentrated effort to raise funds for the victims and their families, 4 Orlando will be fronted by comedian Joel Creasy and presenter Chrissie Swan, and looks set to be quite the variety show!
The all-star line up includes Julia Morris, Judith Lucy, Magda Szubanski, Jane Turner, Marg Downey, Em Rusciano, Carrie Bickmore, Jeff Green, Aunty Donna, Trevor Ashley, Hugh Sheridan, Nazeem Hussain, Peter Helliar, and The Real Housewives of Melbourne.
“Fortunately we, the gay community, are a damn powerful bunch of queens. We’ve been fighting the good fight since the dawn of time and we’re once again here to prove that nothing can break our spirit.” – Joel Creasey
4 Orlando will be held on Saturday July 9th at the Comedy Theatre, Melbourne.
All proceeds will go to Equality Florida’s Pulse Victims’ Fund, which will distribute the money raised amongst the victims and their families. More information can be found here.
The show is all ages, and tickets are available through Ticketmaster.
