#Lolitics is a project by Chris Coltrane inviting comedians and campaigner/activists to step out of their comfort zones for a little chat about politics. Stand-ups are invited to engage with more political material, and people like me are invited to bring what they know to a stand-up audience.

It is a nurturing environment. There is cake. I’d been to an earlier event and was blown away by an entire set about Nadine Dorries from Nadia Kamil.

Encouraged by Chris, I brought these good people what I knew about Page 3. The following is an audio recording of the exchange, along with the relevant slides (old-skooled onto cardboard for this event, but pixelled in glorious web colour here for you).

If you would like to share this video with others in Twitter, please use the link (because it will send sweet, sweet link-love to the main project page, where this video will headline from today).

    Thing is, Lolitics looks like it should be the scientific study of teenage girls.

    I regret to inform you that the name Lolitics is already taken by the wonderful band of ‘Loliticians and ‘Conshituents’.
