Freedomroo – Anti-vax Nikki Osborne says there’s ‘no vaccine passport required for entry’ to her stand-up show

No vax, no problem? Anti-vax comedian Nikki Osborne, 40, (pictured) has claimed there's 'no vaccine passport required for entry' to her new politically incorrect stand-up show

She sparked controversy last month by sharing a meme comparing the Covid vaccine mandate to rape.

And comedian Nikki Osborne, 40, continued to peddle her anti-vaxx beliefs on Wednesday by advertising her new Too Far? stand-up show as a ‘vaccine passport free’ event. 

Posting to Instagram Stories, Nikki shared a promo image for the politically incorrect show ahead of its premiere at the Brisbane Powerhouse this week, as part of the 2021 Brisbane Comedy Festival.

‘Opens tomorrow night,’ she wrote next to the image, adding: ‘And for those asking: there is no vaccine passport required for entry.’ 

However, a quick look at the Brisbane Comedy Festival’s website indicates that vaccine check-ins are in fact required for entry. 

‘We take the safety of our patrons, staff and artists seriously. A COVID Safe Plan is in place for Brisbane Comedy Festival venues,’ the website reads.

‘By purchasing tickets, you agree to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in line with Government mandated vaccination requirements,’ it continues. 

The site confirms that guests will be required to use the Check In QLD app prior to entry, as well as providing proof of vaccination.  

It comes after Nikki faced backlash for sharing shared a tasteless meme about Covid vaccine mandates on Instagram last month.

Her since-deleted post showed convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein next to actress Lindsay Lohan, alongside the caption: ‘The original no jab, no job.’   

The meme was in reference to Covid-19 vaccine mandates, and compared them to Weinstein’s ‘casting couch’ crimes and the wider Hollywood practice of actresses having sex with influential producers in exchange for film roles. 

The disgraced American film producer is serving a 23-year sentence after a jury found him guilty in March 2020 of rape and sexual assault.

Fellow reality star Abbie Chatfield subsequently slammed Nikki on Instagram in a series of videos, saying: ‘I don’t know if you’re anti-vax, I will assume you’re not because that would be awkward for a live performer.

‘Imagine a female in the industry to think it’s funny to make fun of rape and sexual assault victims. Jokes about rape aren’t funny.  Unless it’s about your own sexual assault as a coping mechanism. 

‘Have you been sexually assaulted Nikki? If you have, what are you doing? If you haven’t, what are you doing? Have you got a friend who has been raped? Because most people have.’

Bad taste: Abbie continued, 'Imagine a female in the industry to think it's funny to make fun of rape and sexual assault victims. Jokes about rape aren't funny'

Abbie went on: ‘So for you to sit there and make a joke likening the vaccine that is saving lives to rape… 

‘I don’t know if you’re anti-vax but it’s a ridiculous joke. Likening the vaccine to rape is one of the most disgusting things I have seen in my entire life.

‘Imagine being so s**t at comedy that you have to make fun of rape victims.’

The reality star then questioned why Nikki was using her large platform, and fame as the host of Just for Laughs Uncut, to share such material.

‘And being a female comedian in this industry, and making fun of rape victims, and still being able to host a TV show. Maybe try and muster up some empathy,’ she said.

Nikki later responded to the controversy, writing on Instagram Stories: ‘Dear Mob, You’ve been misinformed. Your quarrel is not with me. I’m on your team. Warmest, Casting couch survivor.’
