After the success of their first sold out show, Ellen Briggs and Mandy Nolan will be returning to the stage for one night only to share their incredibly relatable and hilarious stand-up comedy.
Women Like Us investigates the day to day struggles of being a woman, exploring parenting, relationships and body image through a shared voice which is often unheard. Comedian, Ellen Briggs said,
“A lot of comments after show are from women who say ‘Oh my gosh, it’s like you’ve got a camera in my house!’ We’ve come up with a way to make our comedy really relatable, I think everyone will see something of themselves or certainly someone they know in our comedy.”
The show will showcase both of their performances, with Nolan and Briggs having one hour on stage to share their stories and humour through their differing, yet fun styles.
“Both of us have very different styles, I’m more of a storyteller and pretty much all of my comedy is based from my personal experiences. Something may happen and you don’t always know when it happens that it’s comedy, but on reflection there’s something humorous about almost everything,” Briggs said.
Nolan and Briggs hope audiences won’t only laugh hysterically during their stand up but will also recognise the underlying message of the show and feel more confident in themselves.
“The tagline of our show is ‘It’s what’s underneath that counts.’ We want audiences to take that message away. We are all in this together as women and we all have the same problems and that’s why the show is called Women Like Us. We want audiences to forget about whatever’s happening in their life and have a really great night” Briggs concluded.
