Virgins are funny

Every term of every year local comedienne Mandy Nolan (pictured) coaches a brand new crew of aspiring locals in the gentle (ha!) art of stand-up comedy. Most openly admit that its their greatest fear, some confess a secret desire to become a professional, others are recovering from emotional trauma and want to re-discover their funny bone and nearly every one of them is curious about just what will happen six weeks down the track when they take to the stage and perform their very first solo stand-up routine.

The latest crop of comics are ready (or not) to face their moment of comic truth. (Its called the Virgin Sacrifice.)

Theyll hit the stage with their five minutes of comic genius (or not) at the Byron Bowling Club next Monday, April 2, from 8pm. Tickets are $15/10 and can be booked on 6684 3443. Mandy will MC the event.
