Tutor Profile:

Mandy Nolan

“I really admired people who could act small and humble. So I tried acting like that. But when I watched it back on the video there was this big, larger than life character. Look at me! Look at me!

I just started getting work giving talks and things. And after about 10 years, when people asked, I’d say, well, I’m guess I’m a comedian. Then I realised I was getting paid for it. And that I loved it. So I threw myself into it.

I don’t think you become one (a comedian), I think you are one. I can teach you the craft, but I can’t teach you how. I can create the opportunity to use the techniques in other parts of your life – with friends, public speaking.

It’s a pretty egotistical career. It’s you and your point of view, what you choose to make people laugh at. But you’re also offering people a chance to think about things in a different way. Outside the box.”

Mandy tells her students that you’re just reflecting the life around you. And that often your worst times are the ones, later, that your best material comes from.

There’s Something About Mandy
Mandy Nolan has performed as a stand-up comedian for 25 years. She was just 17 when she first found herself on stage, braving wild crowds as a beginner stand up. "It was terrifying! I was terrible!" she laughs. "Fortunately I have high self-esteem, so I didn't seem to notice!" Nolan credits resilience and persistence in paving the way for a stand-up comedy career that has not only endured it has had hard to impress comedic legends such as Austen Tayshus declaring that "she is one of the strongest female talents in the country".

In her early career she worked alongside internationally acclaimed celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg and Ertha Kit. Since then she has supported Wil Anderson, Dave Hughes, Fiona O'Loughlin, Tom Gleeson, Akmal, Charlie Pickering, Arj Barker and almost every profile comic in the country.

Mandy’s stand-up is known and loved for its rapid fire philosophical philandering and esoteric observations that emerge from the musings of what she describes as "a woman whose dilemma it is to navigate the new frontiers in the suburban badlands of human relationships."

Audiences adore Mandy on stage, and around Byron Bay where she lives, Mandy-jokes are as much a part of the vernacular as any surf speak.

Her humour is sharp, honest, sometimes self-depreciating, somewhat outrageous, but never cruel or pretentious. Frequently irreverent, it speaks to a diverse audience with no set demographic, no gender, race or religion, occupation or tribe. It even crosses state borders and mediums (Mandy also writes and paints).
