Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Overworked, Overweight And Over It

Outrageous Comedic Duo Visits Airlie Beach

Prepare to be outrageously entertained, unprecedentedly overcome with laughter, and struggling to stay in your seat, with these hilarious Australian women Ellen Briggs and Mandy Nolan performing their absolutely cracker comedy show, Women Like Us at the Airlie Beach Hotel this September.

For one night only, this comedic duo will command the stage, with fierce, sharp, and brutally honest stand up comedy.

Only occasionally self-depreciating, but 100 per cent irreverent, Ellen and Mandy will share anything and everything, from farting at yoga, being menopausal and dealing with teenage angst, and tight-lipped sales assistants.

This brand of humour is touching honest and intimately hilarious, fuelled with the warmth of comedians who understand the true nuance of Australian comedy, perfectly in tune with classic regional audience.

Growing up in Mullumbimby, a small town in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Ellen and Mandy know the best one liners to get any small-town rolling.

With this perfect recipe, Airlie Beach will be in stitches this September.

And don’t miss Mandy’s crack ups, from her stint running for MP, as a Greens candidate for Richmond at the Federal election before she came close to winning, and realising that politics was not for her.

Selling out over 250 shows across Australia, and breaching the barriers of the Melbourne Comedy Festivals, these ladies will leave no comedic rock unturned, exploring every aspect of being the classic Aussie woman and Aussie mum.

Stemming from an idea for a novel, to the written word, to an outrageously hilarious podcast, and now the perfectly sixed travelling tour show, these women know how to make an audience laugh, no matter the medium.

Housework, turning 50, saying goodbye to the kids and becoming empty nesters, aging parents, and sex while drunk are just some of the standard topics of discussion that are sure to get the crowd falling out of their seats.

There is no topic these women won’t discus with an open and eager audience, so be sure to get involved with the show.

Do yourself a favour this September and get yourself a ticket for this absolute cracker of a show, set to bring Airlie Beach into a new era of witty and intelligent comedy shows that are sure to knock you sideways.
