10.00pm – Alice Fraser: Empire


Following sold-out seasons and rave reviews globally, Australia’s Alice Fraser is back with a fresh hour of unpredictably meaningful, occasionally silly, narratively unorthodox art-comedy.  Empire is a show about Power, Quantum Physics and Disney Villains.

Academic, ex-corporate lawyer, writer and critically acclaimed comedian Alice has performed with the Cambridge Footlights and toured the world.  She’s debated Julian Assange and done a TEDx talk. One day she’ll make her father proud.

Empire is the follow-up to 5 star hits Savage and The Resistance. Book early!

“Her story-telling is some of the best you’ll hear… this is observational comedy with a deeper poeticism than most.” Broadway Baby. Full review here: http://www.broadwaybaby.com/shows/alice-fraser-the-resistance/713758

“As incisive as it is heart-warming.” Ed Fest Mag. Full review here: http://www.edfestmag.com/alice-fraser-the-resistance/

“Having a twist lying in wait for us at the end of her hour would make Alice Fraser’s latest Fringe affair enjoyable enough, but there are plenty other pleasures to be had as The Resistance goes on its thoughtful, fascinating way.” The List. Full review here: https://edinburghfestival.list.co.uk/article/83645-alice-fraser-the-resistance/

2015 Edinburgh Fringe – Savage:

“A beautiful mess. In turns funny and sad, political and daft, girly and grown up. A sort of a story mined with wonderful chunks of musical surrealism, feminism, religious philosophy and tragedy. And we laughed. A lot.” The Scotsman http://www.wow247.co.uk/2015/08/28/comedy-review-alice-fraser-savage/

“hilarious, brutal and heartbreaking” Kate Copstick http://thegrouchyclub.podomatic.com/entry/2015-07-31T12_29_14-07_00

“a glorious jumble of great, heartfelt stuff … a great show” The Scotsman http://www.wow247.co.uk/2015/08/10/kate-copsticks-festival-diary-not-all-awards-are-quite-what-they-seem/

★★★★ ” Fraser executes it with such insight, tenderness and love, writing with the language and potency of a poet, that the poignancy hangs on your soul. But it’s funny, too”Chortle http://www.chortle.co.uk/shows/edinburgh_fringe_2015/a/24467/alice_fraser:_savage?review=4253

★★★★★ “Wonderfully funny and devastatingly poignant, Savage is a show that really could change the world” Broadway Baby http://www.broadwaybaby.com/shows/alice-fraser-savage/707850
