Women of Wit is coming to Drysdale with a lineup of hilarious comedians ready to make everyone laugh.

The show will feature the comedic talents of Prue Blake, Patti Fawcett, Alex Ward and He Huang as they make their way to The Potato Shed on Saturday, July 13.

Sarah Maree Cameron will also join the lineup for her first Women of Wit show and said she was excited to collaborate with other “incredible comedians”.

“It’s one of the great things about doing comedy that you get to cross paths with people and meet new comedians…and it’s a real honour to be part of a lineup like this,” she said.

“I only got into comedy, doing stand-up, about six years ago. I’ve been performing and doing improv and theatre and have been in the media space for a very long time previous to that.

“It was very much thanks to me seeing so many women and other gender diverse people in comedy and in that art space that I felt comfortable that I could do this.”

Cameron said she always feels honoured when people come to see her shows and that events like Women of Wit were a great way to encourage women into the comedic space.

“I always think what a privilege I have to be up on stage and hopefully making most of, if not all, the room laugh,” she said.

“It’s really special to be able to make people smile and make people laugh…and it’s reassuring to know that shows like this are the tip of the iceberg for what is possible and what’s to come.”

Tickets for Women of Wit at 8pm on July 13 are $35, or $32 for concessions, and are available through The Potato Shed.
