Hello, SYA! We are hosting a night of stand-up comedy, featuring five comics talking about their own experiences with abortion, and an abortion researcher bringing the facts, and would love to have Shout Your Abortion table and sell their book at the event, if possible. Show description and contact information is below.


Show Write-up:

My Body, My Jokes is a bimonthly stand up comedy show themed around the experience of living inside these weird, gross bodies. Just in time for the holidays, this month’s theme is everyone’s favorite family dinner topic: ABORTION! Join host, Maria Heinegg, and five hilarious comics as they share their own abortion stories, and social science researcher and abortion expert (and show coproducer!) Jenna Jerman, who will tell us everything we ever wanted to know about the current abortion landscape in the U.S.


Monday 12/17 lineup:

Shalewa Sharpe (2 Dope Queens)

Clare O’Kane (Edinburgh Fringe Festival)

Solange Azor (Lady Parts Justice)

Carolyn Busa (Boston Comedy Festival)
