The reproductive rights non-profit organization Lady Parts Justice (LPJ) presents, “Life is A Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It” on Thursday, February 1st. The two hour hell-raising comedy extravaganza will be live streamed from an undisclosed location in Hollywood that LPJ refers to as The Feminist Sleeper Cell and will entertain while raising awareness about the current assault on reproductive rights and raise funds to help LPJ continue their work. All proceeds will benefit LPJ. Hosted by Lizz Winstead, co-creator ofThe Daily Show, co-creator of Air America, and co-founder of LPJ, “Life is A Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It” will put a hilarious feminist twist on all the usual telethon conventions. In the era of #MeToo, you can expect righteous comedy, music, parlour games, and a celebrity craft corner where a few of LPJ’s favorite celebs will create one-of-a-kind items to be auctioned live during the telecast. And not to be missed Eunice P. Justice will deliver the 4th annual State Of the Uterus. And there will be a "Patriarchy" piñata because if anyone is going to smash the patriarchy why not LPJ and their Feminist Sleeper Cell cohorts!

The livestream will feature appearances by a number of celebrities including Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Andy Richter (Late Night andConan), Greg Proops (Whose Line Is It Anyway? Smartest Man In The World Podcast),
State Rep. Stacey Newman (Missouri House of Representatives), Rhea Butcher  (Take My Wife), Brian Unger (The Daily Show), Naomi Ekperigin (Broad City), Cameron Esposito(Take My Wife), Amy Brenneman (The Leftovers, Veep), Guy Branum (Chelsea Lately),Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return), Dr. Willie Parker (abortion provider & best selling author), Eliza Skinner (Drop the Mic), Amy Hagstrom Miller (Founder & CEO of Whole Woman's Health), Aida Rodriguez (Shaq's All Star Comedy Jam), Jenny Yang (Dis/orient/ed Comedy), Frangela (VH1's Best Week Ever), Eunice P. Justice (State of the Uterus) and more to be announced. With this lineup, “Life is A Living Nightmare: A Telethon to Fix It” promises an outrageously funny evening that will help raise money for the important work of Lady Parts Justice supporting their boots-on-the-ground efforts to get out the vote, production of hilarious and informative videos, and work with activists to help them grow their support bases in an effort to expose anti choice politicians and help elect pro choice politicians.

About her motivation to do a telethon, Winstead says: “In a country dominated by federal, state and local politicians hell bent on bringing on The Apocalypse, LPJ’s work is more crucial than ever! The fact that we have to do a telethon to help guarantee access to reproductive care should have everyone calling-in to donate and eager to learn how to take action.”
