Factory Espresso Comedy – Ellen Briggs & Peter Berner
Fri September 11 - Sat September 12
Early on in her career, she was a finalist in the prestigious RAW Comedy Competition and won a National Foxtel competition that was voted on by peers and managers in the industry. She has never looked back.
Ellen regularly performs as a comedian and MC at venues all over Australia, and has created a stand up comedy show called Women Like Us with fellow comedian Mandy Nolan that they tour all over Australia to packed houses and rave reviews. On the 1st May 2018 they released their co-authored book,” Women Like Us” which needed a reprint in the first week!
In 2017 Ellen was selected by the Melbourne International Comedy Festival to perform at the Melbourne Town Hall in UpFront, the women’s comedy gala to over 2,000 people.
Peter started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1988 and has performed at various prestigious festivals, including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Sydney Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Comedy Festival and Just For Laughs – just to name a few. His intelligent humour has always set him apart as a performer who can comfortably straddle comedy styles as disparate as satire, observational comedy and reactive comedy with easy.
Peter’s major TV hosting roles have been Backberner (1999-2002, ABC TV), The Australian Film Institute Awards (2004), The Einstein Factor (2004-2009, ABC TV), The Loaded Brush (2009, ABC TV), You Have Been Watching (2011, The Comedy Channel) and The B Team with Peter Berner (2016-2017, Sky News Live). All up he has presented more than 500 hours of national television program content in varying genres including comedy, news and documentary in live and taped environments.
