Woman Like Us

By | | No Comments
World Class Comedy from two Aussie legends in the show that is smashing attendance records across the country!
 
Ellen Briggs and Mandy Nolan are two funny ladies. Straight-talking independent women who shoot straight from the lip and keep the stories coming, the kind of sparkly, charismatic women who, if you met at a dinner party you would be enthralled, chin in hands as they deliver one funny, entertaining tale after the other. Armed with a repertoire chock full of Mum jokes,
 
Mullumbimby hippy digs and witty, intelligent tales about waxing, trying on clothes and having to deal with snooty shop assistants, (and that’s just the tip of the iceberg) their humour is warm, sometimes politically incorrect and always entertaining. You want to laugh? Don’t miss this hilarious 2 woman show.

“Hilarious…delivered everything it promised and then some” Drum Media
 
Dave Jory is an Australian comedian who can generally be counted on to show up at least half an hour to an hour before the gig. Then once it’s over he tends to leave pretty quickly.
 
With a combination of hilarious material, intense eye contact and outrageous backstage demands, Dave Jory is the perfect solution to any humour based problem
 
He’s worked with lots of great comics over the years, including Weird Al Yankovic, Louis CK, Arj Barker and Paulie Shore. He appeared on Wil Anderson’s debut DVD and he went with the Australian Defence Force to the Solomon Islands and Afghanistan, to entertain the troops.

After nine years on the Australian club and festival circuit, Jacques has become a bona-fide headliner, known for his ability to adapt to the crowd and throw consistently sharp, relentless comedy blows. Jacques weaves character renditions into social commentary with strong performance skills and well written material, resulting in some poignant comedy. He leaves crowds thinking and laughing long after the curtains have closed.
 
Jacques has spent the last 18 months honing his stagecraft on the world stage with a tour stopping off in South East Asia, South Africa, Romania, Prague, Switzerland, Croatia, Estonia, Helsinki, Sweden and 12 months on the tough UK comedy circuit.
 
His CV extends to a skill-set covering several other mediums: 12 months on Austereo network’s flagship station 2Day FM, a full 13 episode season as a field reporter on Channel 9?s late night hit Ralph TV, appearances on the Footy Show and One HD sports, a regular columnist for men’s magazine Zoo Weekly and a natural affinity for stage acting and VoiceOver. His focus is standup but these skills are transferable. A star still on the rise, who is not to be missed!
