Mandy Nolan’s stand-up graduates will be sacrificed in front of a live audience at the Mullum Ex-Services Club on Monday September 17. File photo

Mandy Nolan’s Stand Up Comedy course is one of the longest running courses on offer at the Byron Community College.

For the past 22 years, the popular North Coast personality has taught local aspiring comedians the dark art of stand up.

Her course regularly books out something that still surprises Nolan even now.

‘I am still shocked that people are so keen to do stand up! I know how much fun it is but I thought that I would have taught the entire shire by now!’

And she almost has – some 1,500 students on, with national headline acts like Hannah Gadsby and Ellen Briggs both getting their start under Nolan’s tutelage.

‘But people do it more for than just being a comedian,’ says Nolan. ‘It’s a bucket list thing. And it should be – its so much fun, and you don’t have to want to be a comedian to get something out of it!’

Nolan’s latest crop of comedians are truly spectacular.

‘This group has the largest number of incredible mouthy single women giving stick to the lack of available men in the area that I’ve ever had!’

Come and see the latest crop of stand-up comedians fly in the face of fear when they perform at what is sure to be another jam-packed night.

It’s something of a cult event these days ­ the Virgin Sacrifice!
