FemCom Special with Pernilla Hammargren (SWE) 23.11.2017
Helsinki’s Feminist Comedy Night comes to Tampere with a very special show featuring Pernilla Hammargren, Jamie MacDonald & Juuso Kekkonen!
The night’s headliner Pernilla Hammargren is a Swedish comedian and the runner of Stockholm’s prize-winning feministic stand up club Stand Up Yours (with Shanthi Rydwall Menon). She has performed at festivals such as Women in Comedy in Manchester, England, Lund Comedy Festival and in many stand up clubs in Sweden. Her latest show, Homo Aloneo, is touring throughout Sweden and Europe, and we’re delighted to get some of her unicorn sparkle magic!
Juuso Kekkonen is Finland’s bizarro ambassador for polyamory, kinkiness, and meandering, clever comedy. You might see him ranting on YLE kioski when he’s not lighting up the stage at his very own Kekkosklubi. Jamie MacDonald is that trans queer Canadian comedian who talks endlessly about gender, dinosaurs, and whether or not fashion is actually real.
What’s a Feminist Comedy Night? It’s stand-up, but from a feminist perspective. Instead of relying on stereotypes, we’d rather pick them apart. Instead of punching down we punch up – or at least sideways. Oppression is boring AF.
The whole show will be in English.

A note on safety: Fem Com aims to make the space free from oppression and discrimination on the basis of one’s identity. Everyone should be made welcome and respect the boundaries of others. Onstage, comedians may cover themes such as sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, structural and interpersonal violence, and other sensitive topics.
