LearnToLive Comedy Gala Press Release (002)

Grab a ticket and laugh til you can’t as LEARNTOLIVE proudly presents the 4th annual LearnToLive Comedy Gala and help provide the means to a sustainable future for less fortunate communities around the world.
The LearnToLive Comedy Gala is back with a huge night of stellar entertainment on Saturday 10 June and in its new home at the Athenaeum Theatre. This year’s line is the finest and funniest yet. What’s better than a night of laughing is a night of laughing for a good cause. All artists will generously donate their time in support of LearnToLive’s vital work : joining communities worldwide to improve quality of life through healthcare, education, and access to clean water.
Legendary balladeers TRIPOD head up the bill, alongside a virtual embarrassment of comedy riches in DAVE HUGHES, KITTY FLANAGAN, SAMMY J, CAL WILSON, GERALDINE HICKEY, and CHARLIE PICKERING. If there was any more brilliant comedy on the bill it would be an OH&S issue.! !

LearnToLive was started in 2011 by Yanti Turang, an extraordinary Australian lady now living in USA, who observed first hand the gaps in the health care system, lack of health education, and lack of access to clean water in rural Indonesia. Since then they have run successful health clinics with teams of volunteer nurses, doctors, and medical students providing basic health care and health education in Sapa, Beringin, Likupang, Siladen, and Bunaken.
Their water teams have constructed rainwater catchment systems in Sapa and Siladen, repaired an existing water filtration system on Bunaken Island, and implemented a school curriculum about clean water in these areas. They have expanded their scope globally to Laos in partnership with ADRA and The World Food Organization to run maternal and child health programs, reproductive health education, ultrasound training, and a nutritional survey in Mok Mai.

Dig in for this good cause and grab a bunch of mates and head to the Athenaeum Theatre for a stellar night of mirth and mayhem with some of Australia’s very best comedians performing at the LearnToLive Comedy Gala on Sat 10 June. Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are $45 and on sale now, from
