MRA Sues Comedian Iliza Shlesinger for Banning Men From Comedy Show

Iliza Shlesinger

A men’s rights activist is taking on comedian Iliza Shlesinger in court for banning men from attending her “Girls Night In” shows even after they paid for their tickets.

The lawsuit states that 21-year-old George St. George bought a $30 ticket for Shlesinger’s show on November 13 in Los Angeles, which was advertised as “No Boys Allowed.” On the Largo website, the show is described as “a hybrid stand up show and interactive discussion between Iliza and the women in the audience aimed at giving women a place to vent in a supportive, fun and inclusive environment. She invites women of all walks of life to come, laugh with her and at her and be ready to share and feel safe for an awesome night of comedy and love.”

Men, however, are not welcome.

When St. George and a male colleague tried to enter the show, they were prevented from sitting at their allotted seats and told to sit in the back row. The two went out for dinner following the inquiry, but when they returned, they were denied entry into the venue and turned away.

St. George has been a plaintiff in several suits challenging “ladies nights” at bars and other public establishments for violating the Unruh Civil Rights Act of 1969, which prohibits establishments from discriminating based on race, sex, religion, and disability.

St. George’s attorney, Alfred Rava, a former secretary for the National Coalition of Men, has filed over 150 such complaints accusing California businesses of violating the law, according to Variety. Rava says he is no longer a member of the men’s rights organization. 

“At no time should an entertainer or an entertainment venue require female patrons or male patrons sit in the back of the theater based solely on their sex,” Rava said. His client is reportedly seeking “only the statutory damages” for violations of the Unruh Act.

“Since this is a legal matter, I’m unable to comment to the specifics of this lawsuit,” Shlesinger told Rolling Stone. “I will say that of the many shows I do throughout the year, Girls Night In was a singular evening that encouraged women to get together, talk and laugh about the things we go through as well as donate some money to Planned Parenthood. It’s unfortunate that this has now become an issue.”

    Yeah, I’m sure the Nuremberg Rallies were a safe, fun and inclusive environment too. You have to have outsiders to record what these women say at these “safe spaces” to make sure they are not distorting history and society and riding sanity off the rails. That’s a Commie trick to get people to support them, to fire them up with grievances that never happened. Truth to tell, the serfs were better off under the Tsar than the Commies…we know that now.

    This is getting ridiculous. Men should be allowed their men only clubs, nights out, men only stag nights and so on and women should be allowed exactly the same for themselves. Equal rights for both sexes was never meant to get this ridiculous.

    Once it was found that a man had bought a ticket, his money should have simply been refunded and he refused entry. End of. He obviously deliberately bought the ticket to see exactly how much trouble he could cause. The name of the show said it all “Girls Night In” – Not “Girls Night in but Men are Welcome”.

    It’s like now they are trying to force the Boy Scouts to take girls. Next it will be forcing the Women’s Institute to take men.

    There is no mystery now between men and women and I find that very sad.

      Sorry, no. This is called “separate but equal”, essentially condemned by a case called Brown v. Board of Education in the case of discrimination, which, if you had paid attention in school, you would know about. What you suggest is unconstitutional and also a violation of the Unruh Act.

    Let’s make some small changes to to her statement: “Shlesinger told Rolling Stone. “I will say that of the many shows I do throughout the year, Boys Night In was a singular evening that encouraged men to get together, talk and laugh about the hell women put us through as well as donate some money to Right To Life, It’s unfortunate that this has now become an issue.”
