So what makes local comedian and mum of twins Ellen Briggs tick? We got her to finish these sentences to delve deeply into her psyche. Turns out she’s got some issues… and that’s why she’s so bloody funny!
When I am alone I… love it.
The thing I wish the most is… my dog could talk to me.
Cricket is better than… pretty much anything.
My mother always said… stuff I never listened to.
When I make love to my husband… I’m almost always awake.
At parent teacher meetings I always want to… say ‘Your kid does!’
Going to the gym… sucks.
Women who can eat anything… must poop a hell of a lot.
When I wear shorts… I am either really drunk or dreaming.
If I could have two people for dinner, living or dead, they would be… John Mayer and Robbie Williams. I’m shallow and have terrible taste in music.
I always thought I’d… look hot forever. Who knew you lost your looks?
My most precious moments are spent… on my ride-on lawn mower listening to test cricket in the summer.
At my school reunion… I called someone a mole, a phrase I hadn’t used since I was at school in the eighties.
If I want to impress someone I… tell them I know Mandy Nolan.
People should come to Women Like Us because… I am telling you to and I don’t like it when people don’t do as they’re told. Plus the fun you have will get you through the hell of Christmas.
Ellen Brigs and Mandy Nolan present their two-hour x 2 solo standup sets as Women Like Us at the Byron Community Centre on Friday. Tickets on byroncentre.com.au.
Show at 8pm.
