BEING A WOMAN IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
A health show for women of all ages
After 5 sell-out seasons at the Royal Women's Hospital Nelly decided to offer this show for touring or one-off events for health services and communities. The show is hosted by Nelly and features a number of well-known female comedians. it goes for approximately 2 hours (with a break in the middle) and takes a holistic view of women's health. It is perfect for a community event to bring women together and covers everything from the politics of women's health to menopause and includes content on safer sex, emotional health, disease prevention, mental health, lesbian health, osteoporosis, the cost of health-care, alternative medicine, CALD access to health care, continence, alcohol and drugs, and much, much more.
“The feedback we have received about the event has been absolutely overwhelming. The only complaints were that people had sore stomachs from laughing so hard on the night. Such sensitive topics are generally difficult to discuss, in utilising comedy as a method of delivering such messages, you all did a clever and remarkable job.”
Alicia Peardon, Barwon Health Foundation
