A chance to laugh your head off and help a serious cause is on offer this Saturday as a bunch of Melbourne-based comedians head to Shepparton.
A dozen comedians, including festival award winners, up-and-comers and former Goulburn Valley faces will appear at The Aussie hotel this weekend for a night of stand-up comedy.
The Laugh Your Head Off gig aims to raise money for Shepparton’s youth mental health service headspace.
Gig organiser Karina Johnson said everyone involved, particularly performers with local roots, wanted to give back to the community.
‘‘Headspace is a worthy cause and we are all aware of the good work it does in helping the welfare of Shepparton people,’’ Ms Johnson said.
She said performers included Shepparton’s Aaron McFadyen, Stanhope’s Gary Robertson and Tatura’s Heath Johnson.
She said also on the bill was MC Ben Horowitz, a Melbourne International Comedy Raw Comedy State finalist in 2010.
She said Mr Horowitz was a former boxer who had swapped punches for punchlines.
Headliner for the evening Evan Hocking is a regular at footy and sporting clubs and has a laidback Australian take on observational humour.
Other comedians are Alan Sweeney, Andy Moratis, Emily O’Loughlin, Gabe Hogan, Gamze Kirik, J. J. McLean and Paul Bonadio.
