Thursday, July 12 - Doors 7pm - $18 adv.
Hosted by Lizz Winstead, LPJL Founder and the Co-Creator of The Daily Show, with special guests Hadiyah Robinson (Comedy Central, host pf Black Ass Podcast), Dina Nina Martinez (Founder International Lady Laughs Comedy Festival) and Robert Jenkins (LaughFest) *Lineup Subject To Changei.
The Vagical Mystery Tour will travel to eight cities over the course of eight weeks beginning June 12. Lizz Winstead and her LPJL team will be joined on the road by various special guests including Aparna Nancherla (Conan, Corporate), Gina Yashere (Netflix,The Daily Show), Greg Proops (Whose Line Is It Anyway, The Smartest Man in the World Podcast), Maysoon Zayid ("I Got 99 Problems…" TED Talk), and Alonzo Bodden (Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me; Winner of Last Comic Standing). Each show will not only present some of the most hilarious and sought after comedians in the business, but will include an informal post-show talkback with abortion providers and activists, who will inform the audience about what is at stake for abortion rights in their state, and offer tangible ways the audiences can roll up their sleeves to fight back.
But The Vagical Mystery Tour is not just performances. At each stop, Winstead and the other VMT performers will extend their activism by doing direct action work with local clinics; everything from escorting patients or bringing the staff a hot meal to lawn care and sometimes even remodeling. And because the 2018 VMT takes place during an election year, they will also partner with local non-partisan grassroots organizers to help get out the vote. These comics are doing it all to help make change this fall!
Lady Parts Justice League (LPJL), the comedy- driven reproductive rights organization announces their summer tour bringing their unique combination of comedy, activism, and on-the-ground support to abortion clinics and audiences across the nation. After a wildly successful debut last summer, the 2018 Vagical Mystery Tour (VMT) returns with an even more ambitious national tour that promises not only to make audiences laugh and dance, but the VMT performers will work with fans to get them to become activists in their own communities.
