Geelong’s Type 1 Foundation is hosting a comedy night with Dave Hughes and Dave O’Neil

Aptly titled Type1 Lockdown Laughs.

As we get deeper and deeper into round two of lockdown in Victoria, binge-watching content online has evolved from a popular pastime to an obligatory practice in staying sane while confined to our four walls and socially distanced from all our favourite humans.

While streaming services like Netflix, Stan and Binge have been great to fill the void, it’s been both inspiring (and refreshing) to see the local community also doing their bit to take their events online to share some joy as we continue to adjust to our current lives in isolation.

Ensuring we don’t go too long without fresh laughs; Geelong’s Type1 Foundation have organised a special virtual comedy night.

Titled Type 1 Lockdown Laughs, the event will feature none other than comedy sensation Dave “Hughesy” Hughes and comedy legend Dave O’Neil who will grace the virtual stage with their trade-mark styles of comedy this coming Friday, September 4, from 7:30pm.

Designed to raise awareness about Type 1, this event is completely free and will be ran via Zoom, however donations are much appreciated if it’s within your means.

If you haven’t heard of the Type1 Foundation before, it was founded by CEO Ange Liston-McCaughley after the sudden diagnosis of her daughter Lila at age 9, and is all about raising awareness of Type 1 Diabetes through education in schools, medical practices and the wider community.

With the mission to create a world that understands the impact of Type 1 Diabetes on the individuals and their families, the foundation began raising money to fund family support events and activities that provide invaluable support and connection to families living with Type1 Diabetes.

Since its beginnings, the Type 1 Foundation has supported individuals and their families Australia-wide at no cost – from diagnosis right throughout the journey – and this event is just one more way for the foundation to continue to provide support to help families live positively with Type 1 Diabetes.

Please note, this event is 16+ only.
