Stand Up For Space2b
A night of comedy & music in support of newly arrived migrants refugees & people seeking asylum
Thursday 31 October - MEMO Music Hall - Doors 7pm

To help Space2b remain financially sustainable, Colin Lane (Lano & Woodley) will host ‘Stand-up for Space2b,’a night of stand-up comedy and music featuring (among others) the brutally honest, devastatingly hilarious, Judith Lucy along with 2019 Melbourne Comedy Festival Most Outstanding Show nominee and 3RRR Breakfaster co-host Geraldine Hickey. Melbourne’s favourite genre bending musical chameleons, Eugene Hamilton and The Money will take us on a funkified, countrified, Latin, soul, boogaloo joyride that guarantees to fill the dance floor.
Judith sums up the night beautifully: “What the people at Space2b do is really top-shelf, so please come along to ‘Stand-up for Space2b’, laugh, dance and basically feel less like an asshole!”

Colin Lane is an Australian comedian, actor and TV host living in Melbourne, best known for being one-half of comedy duo Lano and Woodley. Since the farewell tour, Colin has toured to cabaret and comedy festivals around Australia. He has been a regular on a wide variety of Aussie TV shows, including Spicks and Specks, Ready Steady Cook, The Circle, Good News Week & The Project. Lano & Woodley returned to the stage in an all-new show FLY, which won the 2018 Melbourne Comedy Festival People’s Choice Award.

Judith Lucy started performing stand up over 20 years ago, and since then all her shows have been utterly, achingly, ‘provide warnings to asthmatics’ funny. Rivetingly honest, with a Gatling gun gag rate, no one sees just one Judith Lucy show. She’s the best-selling author of two devastatingly honest, hilarious books and created two of her own ABC series: Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey and Judith Lucy Is All Woman, both of which were nominated for Best Light Entertainment series at the AACTA awards.

Her latest show Things Are Going Well received a nomination for the Melbourne Comedy Festival Award for most outstanding show, while she also took home the coveted comedians’ choice Piece of Wood Award. Geraldine has been seen on The Queens of Comedy Gala, Tonightly and Comedy Next Gen. For the last three years Geraldine has also been a co-host on the much revered breakfast radio show Breakfasters on RRR, and has made multiple appearances on ABC, Triple M and the Hit Network.
