The MardiGrass Comedy Show
7.30pm Saturday 6 May
Nimbin Town Hall
This comedy show, like the MardiGrass festival/rally itself, is an act of rebellion against injustice. Being there and having fun IS the protest. In a long tradition that rolls from a distant smokey past, your hosts Glover & Sorrensen will present yet another evening of stand-up comedy at its best. Join S, Alan, Steve and Mandy in an entertaining protest against insane government policies. See ya there!
Alan Glover (activist and tall guy) and S Sorrensen (not so active and tired) have invited stand-up legends Steve Allison and Mandy Nolan to share their insights into this what-the-hell-is-happening world.
Steve is an international performer who delivers snappy one liners, hilarious stories and funny home truths, all with a clever laid back and friendly style of comedy that everybody can relate to.
Mandy is, well, Mandy. Funny as all get-out. Real as Fudge. Three acts, four friends, and 90 minutes of fun and facts, laughs and lampoons, jokes and jabs.

Dylan Cole is known for his unique style; a combination of theatre, comedy and fictional storytelling. His writing is often described by critics as “intelligent, witty and poignant” Coles’s work Blank Tiles, in which he plays a SCRABBLE World Champion suffering from Alzheimer’s disease had sold-out season in the 2017 Adelaide Fringe & Edinburgh Festival Fringe Festival at Assembly and earned multiple 5-star reviews. His show about hoarding and grief It all sparks joy premiered in the 2019 Melbourne Fringe and went on to play at Gluttony in the 2020 Adelaide Fringe. His latest show Case Numbers (also titled The Briefcase) was nominated for Best Comedy Show at the 2020 Melbourne Fringe.
Matty B’s style can only be described as casual, unashamed and very abstract. Rather than following the traditional model that most comedians use, where they have a loose narrative that ties the jokes together. It is this style of comedy that I don’t enjoy. The sequiturs are generally weak at best. Matty’s style is unapologetic and jumps from joke to joke in more of a stream of consciousness way, rather than anything that resembles a narrative. His humour is dark, twisted, vulgar (in the best kind of way), surreal and very abstract. This self acclaimed bogan hails from 100km inland from Newcastle.
Vanessa Larry Mitchell is a successful comic, emcee and event coordinator, running five of her own successful rooms in the Northern Rivers, NSW region. While her favourite material to deliver is targeted at the 15+ demographic, she has a wealth of observational material suitable for all ages. Vanesa enjoys pushing the boundaries and breaking down social norms, by saying those things women shouldn’t say in public, but we all think!
Loud and making his Grandma proud, Artie Gallagher is an upcoming fast talking comedian from Sydney.
Ari Matti started comedy in Melbourne, Australia, toured all around Asia and Europe after that. Also lived in Vancouver for a year and gigged in Seattle as well during that time. Festival wise I’ve done JFL NorthWest and the Edinburgh Fringe three times now. Estonia has always been my base where I tour and have a successful podcast. I’ve done standup for about 9 years now and love it now more than ever. https://www.arimatti.com/
