Stand Up is an Australian Jewish community organisation that aims to address humanitarian issues in non-Jewish communities. Over the years, Stand Up has organised various initiatives to help disenfranchised communities, such as providing food security to the hungry, supporting refugees and engaging with Indigenous communities. One of their recent initiatives involved using comedy events to raise funds and awareness of the issues they tackle.
The comedy event Stand Up with Stand Up provided a platform for First Nations, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ comedians to showcase their talents while contributing to a good cause. This initiative was not only aimed at raising funds, but it also provided holistic value for everyone involved. The event was impactful to the beneficiaries, performers and attendees.
Stand Up with Stand Up was hosted by Seed Spaces, providing the perfect venue for the event with its spacious layout and modern equipment. The event was fully packed, with the audience enjoying a night of laughter and entertainment while supporting a worthy cause. This successful collaboration between Stand Up and Seed Spaces shows the power of community and innovative fundraising in making a positive difference in the world.

The comedy event was not only a fun experience for those attending, but it also served as a way to promote social justice and increase awareness within the Australian Jewish community. It showed that entertainment can be a powerful tool to bring people together and create a meaningful difference in disenfranchised communities.
