Sydney based, comedy charity events group, The Official Top Ten Night, is supporting mental health and increasing awareness of mental health issues in a unique way through its inaugural comedy night, Laugh Hard.
The night, hosted at University of Sydney’s Manning Bar, will see 10 special guests take to the stage to partake in a night of Theatresports.
“Comedy offers an opportunity for attendees to let their hair down, come together with the local community and be entertained in a unique way”, said The Official Top Ten Night Founder, Alastair Taylor.
The players for the evening include TV’s Wentworth stars Danielle Cormack and Socratis Otto (an Official Top Ten Night ambassador), all-rounder Darren Gilshenan from TV’s Rake and The Moodys, funny man Mitch Garling, fashion blogger and Big Brother contestant Lisa Clark with F45 Founder, Dan Conn, presiding over proceedings. The after party will see Jesabel on the decks.
The concept of The Official Top Ten Night is about bringing people together through the love of list making. Bringing people together and invite them to share stories about important moments in their lives allowing them to break down barriers and talk about real issues.
The conversations that arise provide the opportunity to breakdown barriers around mental health and create a sense of connectivity you don’t really achieve at a normal group gathering. Thus allowing attendees to create strong relationships within their own networks – something that is vital in supporting mental health.
Funds raised by this evening events will support Australia Suicide Prevention Australia.
