Irreverent pair Mandy Noland and Ellen Briggs are returning to the North West to give Wee Waa, Yetman and Bendemeer locals a taste of their down-to-earth comedy.
With seven children between them, the duo are not afraid to explore the ups and downs of domestic life, and have a collection of anecdotes about incidents labelled as 'failures to parent'.
"We're 40 something mothers of teenagers, we're wives, and ex wives!" Mandy said.
"Ellen can wrangle a snake and operate a ride on mower in the afternoon, and by evening she dons heels and a frock and then she's the MC of a charity ball."
Nothing is off the table in their act - from the beauty industry to menopause, weird TV shows, big undies, and the all-important issue of whose turn it is to unpack the dishwasher.
As 'small town showgirls', the pair have endless fun delivering their rapid fire routines on stage, and have a special connection to country audiences.
Hosted by HealthWISE thanks to a Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network (HNECC PHN) Empowering Our Communities grant, the duo will perform free shows in Wee Waa on June 24, Yetman on June 25 and Bendemeer on June 26.
HealthWISE hopes the free night out will give these communities a chance to connect and have a break from the many challenges in recent years, including drought, flooding, fires, the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing mouse plague.
Spaces are limited for the comedy shows, with Bendemeer already booked to capacity.
