Stand-up without the swearing

STAND-UP comedian Nick Penn will star at this month’s Big Gig at the Ballina RSL Club.

A true comedy professional, Nick manages what some say is impossible: an entire feature set without swearing or being offensive.

Nick has been working as a stand-up comic for almost 20 years and his work reflects this. There’s no incoherent rambling looking for a gag, Nick just rolls them out one after the other.

Mandy Nolan went to a barbecue at his house recently and was amused to find that Penn had also invited a skinny chap from down the road sporting a ‘Vegan for Life’ T-shirt.

Penn’s wicked sense of humour goes well beyond the backyard barbie, as he deconstructs what it is to be an ‘Aussie’.

MC’d by the Northern Rivers’ own comedy guru, Mandy Nolan, tonight’s Big Gig at the Ballina RSL Club is sure to be a cracker.

Doors open at 8pm. Entry is free.
