Big laughs at the Big Gig

Greg Sullivan is a real gentleman of comedy.
Greg Sullivan is a real gentleman of comedy.

Greg Sullivan was born in Dalby. Aw, poor fella.

But Greg survived to become one of the funniest men working the joke circuit in Australia. (And beyond. Greg has just returned from a comedy tour of south-east Asia.)

Greg Sullivan never lost his country boyish charm. With a natural intelligence that outshone the average cowboy, Greg learnt that if he couldn't keep his head down then he'd better become a stand-up comedian. He is one of the most experienced and accomplished stand-up comics and entertainment personalities around. Greg worked at Triple M for 14 years, as a writer for the first seven, and then graduated to co-host of the top-rating breakfast show The Cage. He has performed at major festivals such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Sydney Comedy Festival Gala, and has appeared in a variety of roles on television shows such as Good News Week, Home Delivered Humour, O'Loghlin on Saturday Night, The Today Show and A Current Affair.

Despite a lack of sporting prowess, Greg has developed an eminent and likeable public profile throughout Australia, and it's no wonder: he isn't just one of the funniest blokes on the circuit, he's also one of the most generous.

Greg will headline the Big Gig comedy show at Ballina RSL Club next Thursday, February 23.

He'll be joined by support act Silvina, the Uruguayan-born, Israeli-raised girl from Ocean Shores.

MC Mandy Nolan is back again with her signature self-effacing rant on love, life and the universe.

It starts at 8pm and it's free.

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
