INDIE FILM ON WOMEN IN STAND-UP COMEDY ANNOUNCES CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN AND CHARITY PARTNERSHIPS

 

VANCOUVER, B.C. –  Feature film All Joking Aside follows the struggles of a young woman searching for her voice as a comedian, is launching a crowdfunding effort October 10 to October 31 to raise $30,000 in production financing, and lend support to non-profits Canadian Association of Stand-Up Comedians (CASC) and Stand-Up! Girls.

 

Exploring novel ways to engage our audience  Animal Mother Films (AMF) is welcoming the public to become active participants in the film-making process, and connect with a community of comedians and comedy lovers. AMF is offering a unique range of perks and ways to join our film-making team, regardless of where they live.  The campaign will also see partial proceeds directed to CASC and Stand Up Girls to support their comedic efforts in the real world.


Stand Up! Girls is a non-profit organization that offers free workshops in New York City to educate, inspire and equip girls from underserved communities with the communication skills necessary to succeed in and lead male-dominated workplaces.  CASC is a professional association that is currently engaged in a drive to have stand-up comedy declared an official art form in Canada. To find out more please visit our website at alljokingasidemovie.com

 

 

All Joking Aside is a feature-length comedy film about the barriers women face in the entertainment industry, told through the story of one young woman committed to beating the odds and pursuing her dream of becoming a stand-up comic. It’s 2018, and despite making up more than half of the world’s population, women still only count for about 10% of the performers at comedy clubs. If we accept that women are just as funny as men, the question becomes why are there not more female comics, and what can we do about it?
