Equity Comedians' Network

22 April 2015


If you are working as a comedian then we are delighted to announce the setting-up the Equity Comedians’ Network. This was formed by a group of working comedians so that they could communicate, organise and work more effectively with Equity staff to campaign for better conditions in the industry. The Manifesto they have developed has the following key aims:

  • ·        Fair pay for all
  • ·        Safe working conditions
  • ·        Protection from harassment and discrimination
  • ·        Fair treatment in the workplace
  • ·        A standard contract for comedians

If you would like to join the Network please email us at so that you can be kept informed of developments.  The official launch event will be held on June 24th at the Equity head office. (Please note this is a change of date from that advertised in the Summer 2015 Equity Magazine.) You could also contact Michael Day the London Variety Organiser for further information on 020 7670 0235 or
