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”.
