After months of cleaning cupboards, knitting beanies and making sourdough, Women Like Us’ Ellen Briggs and Mandy Nolan have had enough. With their families unable to provide the thrill of a real live audience in what had been described as a ‘hostage’ situation the two comedians are chomping at the bit to get back in front of their home crowd! Yes! They are back on stage, bold as brass giving the sass at Yamba Bowling Club on Sunday 28 November with a whole new show.
With regulations easing in NSW, people are returning to clubs and pubs, but entertainment it’s time to shake off the doom of 2020 with some laughter. In the ‘no dancing no standing’ world, comedy is one of the first industries that can go back – as their audiences are seated! Although Mandy admits that her life will be complete when someone dances to one of her jokes.
Women Like Us is now up to 155 shows. Scoring two 5 star reviews at Adelaide Fringe Festival, their show never fails to deliver, with audience members complaining that the laughs were coming so often that they felt physically exhausted. And yes women have literally wet themselves, so it’s been called a 2 Tena show!
Women Like Us started out 5 years as an idea to tour a comedy show that talked to some of the more ordinary experiences of life as mothers and wives. What the girls didn’t expect was how warmly they’d be received. Women Like Us has become one of the most in-demand touring comedy shows on the regional circuit – with the girls heading out west again later this year for more shows.
So find out how COVID was for Women Like Us. Laughter, as they say, is the best way to survive anything and heck after what we have all been through – we sure need a laugh!
