An international cast of funny folk -- comedians, that is -- have joined Irish stand-up comics Aisling Bea and Jason Byrne in a short pro-equality film to bring out the "Yes" vote on Ireland's marriage equality referendum.
Bea and Byrne shot the video backstage on Britain's hit comedic-panel television show, Q1, in the final hours before Friday's historic marriage equality referendum in Ireland, Gay Star News reports.
Irish voters will decide Friday, May 22, whether the Emerald Isle will become the latest nation to grant equal marriage rights to same-sex couples. If the "Yes" vote prevails, Ireland will make history as the first country to enact marriage equality by popular vote -- a fact not lost on the 20 comedians featured in the video.
Joining the show's host, Stephen Fry, Bea, and Byrne on the funny film with an important message are Jimmy Carr, Katherine Ryan, Trevor Noah, Sean Lock, Jack Dee, Russell Kane, Rob Beckett, Sara Pascoe, David Reginald O'Doherty, Kevin Bridges, Jon Richardson, Rachel Riley, Romesh Ranganathan, Rich Hall, Alan Davies, Danny Bhoy, and Josh Widdecombe.
