ALICE FRASER

Troll Play

Alice Fraser is an award-winning writer, broadcaster, performer and comedian.

She’s also an ex academic, ex-corporate Lawyer and (terrible) banjo player. She has performed such critically acclaimed solo shows as The Resistance, and Savage, which received four and five star reviews in Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and New Zealand, as well as packed out audiences in Edinburgh.

Alice first started performing & writing comedy while studying Arts/Law at Sydney University. During her Masters in English Literature (Rhetoric) at Cambridge, she carried her love of sketch comedy writing and performing into the Cambridge Footlights. She then went to New York for a stint as an intern in an NYC investment bank, started doing stand-up comedy in her spare time, and despite a brief career as a lawyer at Allens Linklaters, has been doing stand-up ever since, all over the world. 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.

Writing credits include Channel 10’s The Project and the satirical news radio show A Rational Fear. She co-hosted the cult radio show Tracksuits weekly on FBi radio in Sydney for many years. She writes a regular column for SBS Comedy. She has made appearances on the Channel 9 Morning show, Channel 10’s Let’s Do Coffee, and the SBS Story Hunters series. She made her feature length movie debut in Jim Minns’ Never Hesitate. Her cult podcast Tea With Alice comes out every week (more or less).
