Event description

Description

Standup For Journalism is a new comedy night designed to help start a conversation about the job of journalism in our digital society.

It's no secret that journalism has an image problem, something that was described not-even-ironically by the outgoing editor of the Daily Mail Paul Dacre in 2018, demonstrated by the fact that journalists are trusted less than estate agents. Why on earth would anyone want to be one?

With help from the highly successful Bright Club academic comedy network, the Standup For Journalism pilot will train people that work in journalism to tell jokes, ending with a live performance.

Getting your support, by telling the human stories of people working in the media, may be crucial to securing the future of an industry that's in trouble.

Money raised from ticket sales will now go to the Lyra McKee memorial crowdfund. She was a dedicated young journalist who was killed while trying to understand the riots happening in Derry.
