Women Like Us is the comedy sensation created by stand ups, Mandy Nolan and Ellen Briggs. Realising they were an anomaly in their industry – kick arse comics but middle aged women – they realised that it didn’t matter how good they were, they were always going to be behind the 8 ball in an industry that favours under 30’s and is dominated by blokes. After years of performing for women’s luncheons and fundraisers to audiences that fangirled them like crazy, they both decided that there was an audience out there for them – they just had to go out there and find them. And so began Women Like Us, they love the Gold Coast and the Gold Coast loves them, so now they’re coming back!
Covid gave them a chance to re invent the show and the two women are loving getting out in their local community (and they're almost locals, coming from Mullumbimby), back into the arms of their beloved regional and coastal audiences.
Don’t expect conversations about Tinder ...it’s more about the ordinary experiences of life as mothers and wives, its about navigating waxing, botox, menopause, ageing parents, shitty teenagers and friends who love conspiracy theories. What the girls didn’t expect was how warmly they’d be received. Women Like Us has become one of the most in demand touring comedy shows on the regional circuit.
Women Like Us is now close to 170 shows. Scoring not just one, but two 5 star reviews at Adelaide Fringe Festival, their show never fails to deliver, with audience members complaining that the laughs were coming so often that they felt physically exhausted. And yes women have literally wet themselves, so its been called a 2 Tena show!
"If these ladies don’t make you laugh, you don’t have a sense of humour." ★★★★★ Glam Adelaide
"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." ★★★★ We Know Melbourne
