MA­TURE-AGE stand-up sen­sa­tion June Hor­den puts the com­edy into cos­metic surgery. Known as the Gold Coast’s own Joan Rivers, Hor­den has been un­der the knife – and isn’t afraid to ad­mit it. Renowned for her in­sight­ful and of­ten out­ra­geous ob­ser­va­tions on the thrills and spills of age­ing, Hor­den joins Ciel Stowe and em­cee Mandy Nolan for the Side Split­ting Com­edy show Wicked Women. Stowe’s wit is re­spon­si­ble for the hi­lar­i­ous disas­ter com­men­tary on TV’s Aus­tralia’s Fun­ni­est Home Videos. The Syd­ney-based co­me­dian ar­rived on the scene ‘‘late’’ at age 26 af­ter com­plet­ing her the­sis on stand-up com­edy. ‘‘Af­ter watch­ing so much com­edy, I wanted to get on stage my­self,’’ she says. ‘‘I talk about celebri­ties, my ex­pe­ri­ences work­ing be­hind the bar – yeah sure, I get a lit­tle rude.’’ Mother of five, provo­ca­teur and bud­get fash­ion icon Nolan em­cees.

Wicked Women plays Side Split­ting Com­edy at Cur­rumbin RSL, on Satur­day. Doors 6.30pm; show 7.30pm.
