– Ladies of Laughter (LOL!) to hit Lagos next month
On the 9th of March 2018, Lagos will host the first ever ladies-only comedy show in Nigeria. The event, which was organized by Q21 Solutions, will take place at the Eko Convention Centre. It is expected to draw many female heavyweights in the comedy business as well star musicians. Upcoming female acts will also get an opportunity to showcase their talents as they share the stage with veterans.
The Ladies of Laughter event was organized as a special platform to celebrate the talent of female comedians. It was also inspired by the #TimesUp campaign that many women around the world have taken up. The campaign was by birthed the Time’s Up movement against sexual harassment which was established by Hollywood celebrities on January 1, 2018.
Attendees to the LOL event can expect a night of drama and entertainment with stage performances from gifted female acts drawn from far and wide to make it a truly unforgettable night.
Speaking about the show, the organizers said “Though the Nigerian comedy industry is well grounded, it remains a male dominated industry. We want to celebrate the women that have been able to break the bars and establish themselves, as well as encourage the upcoming or aspiring comedians.”
Also speaking on the event’s exclusion of male performers ,they said “we want women to be sure of themselves and understand the power they carry. Time’s Up world over, so why should Nigeria be exempted?”
