After a stint on Q&A just a week back, rubbing shoulders with the suits that run the nation, Mandy Nolan returns to the Courthouse in Mullumbimby as MC of the regular free comedy night.

Nolan laughs, ‘It was all very daunting at first, but I thought, I’m a comedian, I don’t have to come up with solutions. I just have to agitate!’

Nolan hosts Open Mic Comedy at the Courthouse in Mullumbimby tonight at 8pm with some real surprises in store!
