A Night of Period Comedy

RDxWM_Facebook 1.png

Red Dot x Womanly Mag are joining forces to give you a night full of laughs about our periods or lack thereof!

Featured comedians include --

  • Brittany Carney

  • Zilla Vodnas

  • Paul Mooney

  • Jenny Nelson

  • Mary Beth Barone

Happy Hour deals will be available throughout the night.

Ticket prices for the event are $20. Merchandise will be available for small donations as well. Click here to purchase tickets. 

All proceeds from the comedy show will be split between the two organizations to lead future work to humanize the period and to share the stories that are never told. Both organizations hope to raise awareness and lift the shame from menstrual issues.

Special thanks to our host, Playground Coffee Shop.
