Titters! Supports International Women’s Day



Adelaide’s own Sheridan Stewart and the brilliant cast of Titters! are rallying their 2012 Adelaide Fringe showcase in support of International Women’s Day on Thursday March 8th.With the likes of Jen Brister (UK) and Urzila Carson (South Africa/NZ), Titters! presents a globally-flavoured and side-splittingly funny line-up. With some exciting local talent also, including Adelaide’s own Lori Bell and Anya Anastasia (the ‘Upside-Down Girl’), the comedy darlings are literally standing up in support of a worthy cause.

Bell brings her hilariously offensive musical character ‘Granny Flaps’ to the sixth year of Titters! with a few accolades to her name. Winner of the 2011 Adelaide Comedian of the Year, and also the People’s Choice Host of the Year, Bell’s boundary-pushing brand of comedy will certainly be a highlight of the star-studded Titters! line-up.

Anya Anastasia’s eclectic mix of dance, comedy and theatre was described last year as, ‘Fringe at it’s wild and spunky best’. Odd, beguiling, but utterly fabulous, there is little surprise her debut show ‘The Upside-Down Girl - Fringe 2012’ has already sold out.

As well as acknowledging this worthy international cause, the cast of Titters! is donating part proceeds of tickets sold on Thursday March 8th to the Women’s Legal Service (SA) Inc. Their fingers are crossed for a full house for their 2-hour show, which includes a 2-course dinner.

“International Women’s Day is a fantastic cause that we’re absolutely stoked to support,” says Sheridan. “What better way to celebrate the achievements of women around the world than to watch some seriously funny, wonderfully confident women showcase their comedic talents, while supporting a worthy service?”



ABOUT INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

International Women’s Day is held annually on March 8th around the world. It celebrates and recognises the achievements of women economically, politically and socially, and has done so since the first International Women’s Day event in 1911. The day honours the work of the Suffragettes and also champions the cause for equality for women everywhere. In some countries, such as China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.
