The girls are back in town

After months of cleaning cupboards, knitting beanies and making sour dough, ‘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 their bits to get back in front of their home crowd. So, here they come, bold as brass, giving the sass at Yamba Bowling Club on Sunday November 28 – with a whole new show. It’s time to shake off the doom of 2020 with some laughter. In the ‘no dancing, no standing’ world, comedy is okay, as the audiences is seated, although Nolan 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, 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,” says Nolan. “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.” So find out how COVID was for Women Like Us. Socially distancing is observed so numbers are limited – get your tickets now to avoid disappointment. Seating will be organised in groups by the club, so call to get your tix or pop in. The show starts at 8pm.
