Jean Kittson in conversation with Mandy Nolan to discuss the funny truth about ageing. 


We came to love Jean Kittson when she smashed into our lives on ABC TV’s The Big Gig. As a matriarch of the comedy scene, Jean has been a regular panelist on TV and radio, lauded for her comedy debates and her wonderfully funny and insightful books. She wrote on Menopause in ‘You’re Still Hot to Me’ and has just released ‘We Need to Talk about Mum and Dad’. Kitson talks about real life issues but always finds the pathos laced with the absolutely hilarious. Join her for breakfast in conversation with Mandy Nolan.


Join her for a Sunday Brekkie session in conversation with Mandy - complete with BLT Roll & a glass of bubbles (included in price). Please arrive by 9am for food & drinks 

(60min duration - no interval)
