About the Event

John Peacock and Vanessa Larry Mitchell are 'Proud and Sassy'.   Two middle aged comedians from Byron Bay and Nimbin. He's as Proud as a Peacock and She's as Sassy as a Salty Sailor.   Vanessa Larry Mitchell is standing out in the crowd with her brave and honest humour - she dares to go there. She's putting the class back into the cattle yards. With an air of confidence that can only be developed through intense self loving, Vanessa brings her stories to life in a way that will leave you both shocked and delighted. A deep thinker with social anxiety and middle age spread. He might also be gluten intolerant. Aged 47, John Peacock worked out what he wanted to do when he grew up. Unfortunately he is yet to grow up and remains largely unfulfilled. So Proud. So Sassy.

Presented by: John Peacock and Vanessa Larry Mitchell

Vanessa Larry Mitchell is founder of Larry Laughs Loud comedy club and a regular MC and performer. Vanessa's brave and edgy style is what gives her the point of difference amongst the comedy scene... if it shouldn't be said... she probably said it. A growing name amongst the local comedy scene, and fast becoming more broadly known across Melbourne and Brisbane, Vanessa has performed with comedy greats Bev Killick & Rusty Berther (scared weird little guys). 

John is coming into his own as one of the bright, young, things (yeah righto shut up) of Northern Rivers Comedy. He’s supported the likes of Akmal, Mel Buttle,and Rusty Berther. He recently opened for Austen Tayshus in what many are calling a pivotal moment in Austen’s career. He’s also watched a lot of very funny people on You Tube.

A NEW comedy production is set to have Northern Rivers audiences laughing in the aisles. Larry Laughs Loud is the latest production from local comedian, Vanessa Larry Mitchell, who will be touring her show througout the area and beyond. Mitchell's comedy career was launched after she attended Mandy Nolan's comedy writing workshop in 2015. "I had no idea where the journey would take me" Mitchell said. Having attended the course for 'a bit of fun', Mitchell descovered that she enjoyed telling stories and potentially risky jokes to rooms full of people. After performing regularly in open mic nights in Byron Bay, Mullumbimby and the Gold Coast, Mitchell found it difficult to balance the travel outside the local area with her full-time day job and being a mum, so she decided to set up an open mic room at he Rous hotel in Lismore. An instant success, Larry Laughs Loud is now a regular monthly gig at the hotel and the Lismore Workers Club, the Deck and Lounge at SCU, Yamba Recreation and Bowling Club, and performances are planned for Alstonville, Nimbin and Evans Head. Mandy Nolan, a veteran to the Australian comedy scene, describes Mitchell as 'A refreshingly natural voice; sassy and confident'. Mitchell said Larry Laughs Loud is about giving new and emerging comics a space to develop their skills on stage in a safe and supportive environment, as well as bringing experienced talent to the region. 'We are generating loads of interest and support from people wanting to have a go on the stage a well as our rapidly growing audiences' she said, "I am particularly passionate about increasing female representation in comedy and supporting women to build confidence, to embrace their own style of humour, in a heavy male dominated industry".
