Elena Terol and Naomi Mourra, two of Newcastle and Sydney’s most exciting stand-ups, will be doing a split show at the old Newcastle Train Station on the corner Watt & Scott Streets in Newcastle on Monday 1 October.
Naomi will be performing part of her solo show ‘An Open Book’, which explores her life growing up as a door-knocking Jehovah’s Witness and closeted lesbian to Lebanese parents.
Elena will be performing stand-up based on her experiences as a Spanish immigrant in Australia, motherhood and everyday life. Elena, who is a writer and comedian, is performing at NJFL for the second time. She’s relatively new to the comedy scene, which she’s found incredibly supportive.
“Being a writer can be lonely. Even when the book is finished, the feedback is delayed, as there’s a whole process, from printing to distribution, before it can get to readers. Stand-up comedy can be intimidating but it also provides immediate feedback on my jokes and when the jokes work, the feeling is fantastic. Also, local comedians share a nice community’ she said.
