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.
