Alice Fraser Chronos

Chronos means time, and this is a show about time for an hour. We’re all running out of it, one way or another. Spend some of yours watching Alice Fraser turn time inside out and back to front. It’ll be fun! It’s a comedy show! No-one’s going to die, except you know... we’re all going to die.

Comedian, writer, podcaster and performer Alice (ABC Next Gen, co-host of 'The Bugle' podcast, UK)  studied law at Sydney University and English Literature (Rhetoric) at Cambridge before working as a lawyer in New York City. She has since written, produced, directed and performed in sold-out shows from Edinburgh to London, New York to Cambridge and many places in between as well as at home with multiple national tours –performing award-winning shows to sell-out crowds and rave reviews.

She has written for The Project; the satirical news radio show A Rational Fear; ABC TV’s The Elegant Gentleman’s Guide to Knife Fighting and Tonightly, and was awarded the 2016 AMP Tomorrow Fund Grant for her weekly podcast 'Tea with Alice'.

Alice is well known to comedy aficionados as regular co-host on Andy Zaltzman’s cult UK podcast 'The Bugle' – a role she’s embraced with relish since she first horrified a live audience in Melbourne with a curious mix of puns, obscenity and flamingo trolling.

Alice has sold out seasons at Sydney and Canberra Comedy Festivals, as well as achieving phenomenal critical acclaim at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe. ABC radio has released The 'Alice Fraser Trilogy' in podcast form using binaural sound, which was subsequently announced as #1 Apple editors choice for Australian podcasts in 2018. Don’t miss the inimitable Alice Fraser as she returns to Melbourne Interational Comedy Festival with her brand-new hour about time!

'The audience are captivated straight away, Alice’s delivery is one of the best I’ve see over the years... and always to rapturous laughter. This is a highly recommended show for the comedy viewing public. ★★★★★' Voice (UK)

'Alice Fraser is a powerhouse. A life-changer... a show that made you laugh and shiver, smile and cry. ★★★★★' Edinburgh Guide (UK)

Suitable for audiences 16+
