Rape is Real and Everywhere (RIR&E): Rape jokes told by survivors

Rape jokes are everywhere. But who are the people telling them? Are these jokes ever ok, let alone funny? What if the people telling rape jokes were survivors?

RIR&E brings together a mix of Canada’s finest headliners and local talent to joke it out on one of Canada’s toughest topics. Be prepared for hilarity, cathartic honesty, and vulnerability.

Hosted by Emma Cooper, RIR&E is a 90 minute comedy segment featuring comedians sharing their experiences with sexual assault and harrassment. Between performances, Cooper shares anonymous cards, written by audience members featuring their own jokes and stories. The show is headlined by co-producer Heather Jordan Ross (CBC’s The Doc Project, BBC’s It’s Funny and It’s True) and has been featured in The Guardian and CBC.

This event is free for MRU students, $5 at the door for non-MRU attendees.
