'I have had the side splitting pleasure of seeing Ellen Briggs perform a few times now and must admit, every time I hear her name, I begin to giggle to myself. She didn't only make me laugh uncontrollably, she made my day. I'm always looking and hoping that she is on the list at any function I go to. Hilarious, hits the mark, makes your day and you won't stop thinking about her crazy but true take on life. Ellen is possibly the funniest comedian I have ever seen and there has been a lot' - Trevor Hendy, Australian Iron Man/Legend
'We had a great day and you were a big part of that. Sponsors all good and enjoyed having the piss taken out of them. I hope it wasn’t too hard that you would say no to us next year because we would love to have you back.’ - Tanya Boyle, President, Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School.
'Ellen Briggs was a fabulous MC for our event on World Autism Awareness Day. Ellen is a charismatic speaker, who used story telling and humour to provide flow to the evening's formalities. Ellen was able to connect with the message we were trying to convey to the community and relay this message to the audience in a very genuine and personal manner. Ellen quickly built rapport with guest speakers (supporting very nervous people to feel at ease) and was flexible and quick witted, in being able to accommodate children and people with autism, who don't always stick to the script or the plan. I can not recommend Ellen Briggs highly enough.' - Jodi Rodgers, Manager, Far North Coast, Autism Spectrum Australia
‘Ellen gave Screenworks Life’s A Pitch event a whole new energy, her own pitch for a Mullum feature film was so hilarious it should have been one of the formal pitches. Highly recommended!’ - Jill Moonie, General Manager, Northern Rivers Screenworks
‘Ellen Briggs is a breath of fresh air on the comedy scene. Relaxed, unpretentious and engaging, Ellen is a born comic. Her candid ability to reduce the most complicated philosopical meandering to a quip, essay to an anecdote, phd to a bumper sticker, is one of her most impressive qualities. She’s beautiful, intelligent and hysterical. It’s an impressive combination. If I wasn’t a heterosexual woman with five kids I’d marry her myself.’ -Mandy Nolan, comedian, promoter, writer & teacher
‘Ellen Briggs is a true professional and an absolute delight to work with. She is incredibly clever, naughty, funny and lovely! I have booked Ellen for multiple events, as well as seen her perform countless times at other peoples events where she gave nothing less than 100% on each occasion. Ellen went above and beyond her call of duty for me by driving for over 4 hours to appear in a 5 minute tv interview to assist in promoting an event. She did a stellar job and her likeable and laidback persona shone through in the interview which appeared statewide on Channel 10. A highly recommended, understated talent who I will continue to book as well as recommend to others.’ - Alys McDonough - promoter
‘Kind of funny’ - Jared Briggs, age 10
