Alex Jae No Sorry, You Go


Alex Jae No Sorry, You Go

Are you an anxious person? Or does everyone else seem to be? Is it all getting to be just a bit too much these days? Alex Jae thinks it is and she’s got jokes about it in her brand-new Melbourne International Comedy Festival show No Sorry, You Go.

Alex is known for her unique style and ability to surprise audiences – juxtaposing her bubbly girl-next-door appearance with a darker, hilarious edge. With her practical and hilarious solutions on family, dating, health kicks, meditation and control issues, and exploring what life is like as an NA (‘non-assertive’ – a phrase she has coined but you can totally use it if you want), Alex will show you how much fun living with anxiety can really be!

After climbing the Sydney comedy ranks, Alex has worked as a writer and featured cast member on Channel Ten’s Pilot Week and Saturday Night Rove, as a writer on Channel Ten’s Show Me The Movie! and as a panelist on Channel 10’s Celebrity Name Game, and has opened for comedians such as Wil Anderson, Greg Behrendt, Gareth Reynolds and Dave Anthony ('The Dollop podcast) and plays Dani in award-winning series Thirty.

When she’s not overthinking things, doing stand-up and working on the telly, Alex also co-hosts the hit podcast 'The Ladies Guide to Dude Cinema', where her and mate Bec Charlwood review the movies dudes can't believe they haven't seen. A podcast seeing movies through the eyes of two ladies (“The time for this podcast is now”), fan reviews call it “binge-worthy”, “reading my mind”, “super fun, funny and light hearted” and “this podcast has changed how I talk about movies with everyone”. And Alex totally reckons she totally agrees. 

Here’s some nice things people have said about her:

'Thoroughly engaging and entertaining… Really clever, tight, well scripted, funny and beautifully timed… a class act.' WeekendNotes

'Genuinely makes me laugh. Not many do.' Dave Anthony ('The Dollop')

'One of my favourite new comedians on the scene. A future star for sure.' Rove McManus

'Real funny. Real cool. Go see her, you losers.' Luke Heggie

'A joy onstage... so much fun and laughter the long applause and cheers didn’t seem enough thanks.' Chuck Moore Reviews

Strictly for audiences 16+
