Description

FOC It Up is here to recognise and represent the fierce, fabulous and funny perspectives of women, trans and non-binary comedians of colour. They are disrupting the status quo, fighting tokenism and spilling diversi-tea with a 100% no-white-dudes-onstage guarantee. According to the Guardian, FOC It Up is a part of a new generation of comics retaliating against the old template of comedy. With every sell-out show, the femmes of colour comedy club proves that FOC may actually stand for future of comedy. Check your privilege at the door!
