Stand up comedians Mandy Nolan and Ellen Briggs have spent the last three years touring the country with their smash hit comedy show Women Like Us performing almost 90 shows to over 25,000 people! Their formula of performing two hours of stand up has proven a huge hit, with audiences declaring this one of the funniest stand up shows they’ve seen. It’s true. The girls are master story tellers able to deliver bellylaugh’s every 30 seconds.
This is no holes barred tell it how it is comedy by women who are tired of the messages being fed to women that they’re too fat, too thin, too old, too young. ‘Women Like Us isn’t just a comedy show’ says Nolan. ‘It's a movement!’
Briggs and Nolan share reflections on their failure to parent, the beauty industry, strange surgeries, special diets, obsessions, frustrations, and at the end of the day the serious politics of ‘who unpacks the dishwasher’.
