The tranquil surrounds of Tyalgum will be reverberating with laughter when the mouthy mama of mayhem, Ms Mandy Nolan, takes to the stage at Tyalgum Hall, teaming up with Nick Penn to present a rollicking two-hour standup comedy extravaganza!

Nolan is a perennial favourite on the local comedy circuit, who now runs eight thriving comedy rooms from Ballina to Currumbin, and she believes that country folk love a laugh as much, if not more, than the next person!

Most recently Nolan was talent-scouted at the Byron Writers’ Festival and plucked from obscurity and onto our TV screens on Q&A.

‘It was a hoot. I really enjoyed being given the opportunity to express a bit of common sense, even if it is from the mouth of a comedian! Fortunately I have managed to find my way back to obscurity again,’ laughs the girl who compares herself to the Big Prawn – ‘Large, iconic and shabby, but somehow reassuring!’

Until locating to Nimbin a few years ago, comedian Nick Penn has spent most of his career headlining comedy clubs around the country. Penn’s droll approach has won him fans on nearly every stage he’s worked. As the father of a young son Penn also made the decision to opt out for a country lifestyle.

Nolan and Penn are embarking on a year-long comedic romp titled ‘Nick Penn goes the Full Mandy’; both comics will be performing hour-long feature sets. This is a rare treat for comedy lovers, who usually only get one feature comedian at any comedy night.

Supper will be provided by Save the Tyalgum Hall, with all proceeds going of course, to saving the historic Tyalgum Hall!

Saturday November 3 at 8pm. Tickets at the door. Don’t miss this riotously funny night of laughter, in your very own backyard!
