Stand Up, Fight Back
It's time to Stand Up and Fight Back.

Stand Up, Fight Back is a one of a kind event that combines stand up comedy, activism, fashion and music into one night. Hosted by Los Angeles based activist / comedian Mike Gamms.

The night starts out with a one hour activist discussion panel featuring local activists from a diverse range of causes. Discussing how they are involved, and how others can get involved on a local, national, and global level. This will be live streamed and recorded.

After the panel, is the country's only comedy fashion show, Comedy Runway, where after each stand up comic performs their set, they are critiqued by a panel of local fashion experts for their fashion and their fashion only and we crown the Best Dressed Comic.

All the proceeds go to the continued activism of those involved. It's time for us all to Stand Up and Fight Back together.
