Monthly comedy gig with Mandy to stir up Ocean Shores

A new entertainment highlight for north Byron shire locals, a monthly comedy gig featuring overseas and national acts, kicks off next month.

It’s to be hosted by popular north coast MC Mandy Nolan and held on the first Tuesday of the month at the Ocean Shores Country Club.

The first show on August 1 features internationally renowned Lindsay Webb.

Mandy says Lindsay’s more than just a standup comedian: ‘he is almost like a mind reader – improvising off crowd responses incorporating totally original and never heard before material’.

Webb burst onto the international comedy scene in 2009 by taking out the Guinness Book Of Record prize for the Longest Show by an Individual comedian of 38 hours and six minutes.

‘This demonstrated Webb’s relentless energy and his unlimited ability to improvise. He’s a comedy machine with a limitless ability to create world class, unique comedy every time he hits the stage,’ Mandy said.

He is the ‘Go To Man’ for crowd warm ups on many big TV series including Gruen Nation and Q&A and has toured extensively throughout the USA and Europe.

Lindsay will be joined by support act Anne Howe, who has the ability to tell an outrageous story outrageously but with ‘charisma and finesse’.

‘Audiences adore Anne’s bawdy humour with stories of her years as a beauty therapist and how she lost her virginity, twice.’

In 2009 Anne went to Canberra, where she won the prestigious Green Faces Comedy award and is still the only woman to win this prestigious highly coveted award.

The show kicks off at 7pm.

A courtesy bus is available, call the club on 6680 1008 to arrange a pick up from, Ocean Shores, Billinudgel, Brunswick Heads and South Golden Beach.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
