“I’m not missing a minute of this. It’s the revolution!” – Sylvia Rivera

In the spirit of celebrating queer joy, EnQueer’s Opening Night will explore finding the absurd and the funny in the queer experience, featuring two comedic contemporaries: acclaimed stand-up performer and poet Cassie Workman and writer, podcaster and content creator Louis Hanson.

Cassie Workman is a comedian, writer and poet, known for her heartfelt and emotive storytelling, incisive wit, and brutal deconstructions of the status quo. Cassie entered the public eye after winning Triple J’s “Raw Comedy” national open mic competition in 2009, then debuted at Edinburgh and Melbourne Comedy Festival.

From 2011-2017, she performed a number of full-length shows at multiple comedy festivals, including “Humans are Beautiful”, “Mercy”, “Ave Loretta”, “War”, “We Have Fun Don’t We” and “Nothing You Do Means Anything”, to acclaim, awards and sold-out audiences.

In 2017, Cassie came out as transgender. After a brief absence from the stage she returned with a vengeance, as an ABC contributor for “Tonightly with Tom Ballard”, a series ‘So You Think You Can Trans’ and the show “Giantess”. Her recent work, an epic poem called “Aberdeen” about rock star Kurt Cobain, has won significant acclaim.
