Performing at: Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival and Perth Comedy Festival

From Cambridge scholar to corporate lawyer, Alice Fraser has evolved into an award-winning performer who has played sold-out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe and beyond. After selling out seasons and touring the world to unanimous critical acclaim with her last three solo shows Savage, The Resistance and Empire, Alice is back with ETHOS.

Premiering at the Adelaide Fringe, ETHOS is a silly, funny and smart show that explores artificial intelligence and what it means to be human. From Golem and Frankenstein’s monster to the prospect of superhuman AI’s, we’ve always been fascinated by non-human minds. In her new show, Alice will attempt to explain our world to a brilliant, but naive newly created artificial mind; touching on human topics such as trigger warnings, pornography and cultural hypocrisy.

Alice completely sold out her last three tours, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Purchase early to see the “incisive, dextrous, compelling” (Chortle) Alice Fraser live in 2018!

ABOUT: Savage, The Resistance, Empire arrow

Performing at: Melbourne International Comedy Festival

Heard of a play within a play? What about three hour-long, critically-acclaimed comedy shows in one three-hour-long comedy show (with two humane intervals). The 'trilogy that wasn’t meant to be a trilogy’ (The Godfather) ain’t got nothing on this epic, enthralling narrative of family, tragedy and comedy.

In 2015 Alice Fraser (ABC Next Gen, co-host of The Bugle Podcast) unleashed Savage onto comedy festivals around the world. The show detailing love, anger and belief was birthed during a heartbreaking period of Alice’s life, and made audiences laugh, cry… and occasionally follow her home. Critics showered the show with 5 star reviews, though many were unsure whether the show was comedy or something else entirely.

During a year of healing, Alice penned the unintended second stanza. The Resistance, another true story, unveiled Alice’s remarkable upbringing and shone a light on the ramshackle childhood home in which Alice’s unique mind was developed. Raised Buddhist by a lapsed Catholic and recovered Jew in her Holocaust-survivor grandmother’s home, in The Resistance Alice chronicled the world of her childhood through the lives and eccentricities of the people she shared it with: manic-depressive Chilean gardener; the Christian Hungarian and veiled Indian women who shared her falling-down household.

After once again touring the world to sold-out seasons and universal critical acclaim Alice Fraser kept the opus’ coming with the final panel in this extraordinary tryptich, Empire - the third, and more controversial piece of unpredictably meaningful, narratively unorthodox art-comedy which laid out masculinity, family, Quantum Physics and Disney Villains and won Alice more gushing praise from critics and dedicated fans wherever she performed.

Don’t miss this unique, brilliant and dangerous high-wire act of comedy that will either be a disaster, or the best thing you see this year. Come along and find out.
