Casual evening out at the Sydney Comedy Festival, Thursday 16 May 2019

Members gathered at the Enmore Theatre to hear fellow alum and comedian Alice Fraser entertain them with her new comedic masterpiece Mythhos. Alice takes on the stories and lies that we tell ourselves about ourselves. Is beauty truth? Is truth beautiful? What does anything mean any more? Alice then joined members for a drink after the show. Comedian, writer, podcaster and The Bugle (UK) podcast regular Alice is a word geek, polymath and ex-corporate lawyer. That’s quite a lot of stuff right there. Insatiable academic Alice studied law at Sydney University and English Literature (Rhetoric) at Cambridge before working as a lawyer in New York City. When she found herself spending more time writing jokes than litigation; Alice realised that the funny stuff was far more exciting to her than the legal stuff. Alice has taken her passion for comedy, writing and performing around the world - with sold-out shows from Edinburgh to London, New York to Cambridge and many places in between. Consistently selling out seasons at comedy festivals across Australia and the Edinburgh Fringe, critical comparisons to Daniel Kitson and her brilliant guest spots on British comedy podcast The Bugle have earned Alice a ferocious cult following. At the 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Alice performed her three previous years’ shows (Savage, The Resistance and Ethos) back-to-back as Trilogy, to a full house and standing ovation at Melbourne Town Hall. Alice subsequently took the Trilogy to London and the Edinburgh Fringe before the ABC released The Alice Fraser Trilogy in podcast form using binaural sound.
