Alice Fraser is an award-winning writer, broadcaster, performer and comedian. She performs reliably silly, unpredictably meaningful, narratively unorthodox, gut-punch comedy.
Alice first started performing & writing comedy whilst studying at Sydney University. During her Masters in English Literature at Cambridge, she carried her love of sketch comedy writing and performing into the Cambridge Footlights. In New York during a stint as an intern at an investment bank, she started stand-up comedy, and despite a brief career as a lawyer, has been performing full time ever since, all over the world, to universal critical acclaim.
"Raw Supersmart Hilarity” – Cosmopolitan Magazine
Alice's breadth of experience from the hallowed halls of Cambridge in the Footlights to the sticky floors of New York's cut-throat comedy scene has left her with tough, flexible and impressive writing and performing skills.
Her sold out solo shows have been performed at numerous Festivals such as the Melbourne Int Comedy Festival, Sydney, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, New Zealand and Edinburgh Fringe.
"incisive, dextrous hour of compelling storytelling: the way she brings characters to vivid life, then resolves their narratives to a bigger picture” – Chortle
"The atmosphere is acrobatic, Fraser’s story-telling is charismatically compelling and her delivery is flawlessly paced...It makes you laugh, it makes you cry.. most importantly, it makes you think... This is stand-up like you’ve never seen it before. Wonderfully funny and devastatingly poignant, Savage is a show that really could change the world, or at least the way you choose to see it” – ★★★★ Broadway Baby
Alice has given a TEDx Talk about vanity in the face of death, debated the power of the media against Julian Assange at Splendour in the Grass and once did a gig in a Butcher’s shop next to a rotating meat display that was much more stressful than either of those things.
