Dunoon Sports Club | Saturday 1 June | 8pm | $35
Women Like Us’s Ellen Briggs has just turned the big 5–Oh. She really tells some cracking yarns about her family when she’s on stage, but how much do you really know about Ellen?
Your biggest regret?
Not buying a house in Brunswick Heads when my husband suggested it 25 years ago.
Worst hair moment?
I’ve had the same hairstyle since I was 13 so I’d say the moment has lasted 37 years now.
Your biggest love?
Well I kind of have to say my family, and that would be true, but I also really love it when they’re not at home and I am alone. I have mowed the lawn, I have a glass of wine poured, and I can do some crocheting. That’s a lot of love.
Most spectacular fashion fail?
I never fail to be out of fashion.
Your pet hate?
I have too many to list one… but if you are short on time to get me angry, stand me at a baggage carousel in an airport and I will lose my mind at the people who stand right next to it. I love getting my bag and swinging it into their legs then smiling and saying sorry.
What’s a deal breaker for you?
Bad shoes on a man. Actually even worse than bad shoes: socketts on a man. Please stop that.
What kind of kid were you?
One who spent most of my time with my pets, and telling lies to my parents about where I was, if they ever actually asked. Naughty, but bright.
What did people say about you at school?
She’s a bit of a slut.
Stupidest idea your husband has had?
To not buy the house in Brunswick Heads 25 years ago. Oh, and he bought me three wheat bags for my 50th birthday. He’ll regret that for the rest of his natural life.
The best way to get into your good books?
Let me pat and talk to your dog and then leave me alone.
Ellen is joined by Mandy Nolan when they perform their hit touring show Women Like Us at the Dunoon Sports Club on Saturday 1 June at 8pm! Tix are $35 at the club or on womenlikeus.com.au
