ALEX WILLIAMSON
SO WRONG, IT’S WRONG
MAY 2018

ALICE FRASER
ETHOS
MAY 2018
Presented by Frontier Comedy

From Cambridge scholar to corporate lawyer, Alice Fraser has evolved into an award-winning performer who has played sold-out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe and beyond. After selling out seasons and touring the world to unanimous critical acclaim with her last three solo shows Savage, The Resistance and Empire, Alice is back with ETHOS.

ETHOS is a silly, funny and smart show that explores artificial intelligence and what it means to be human. From Golem and Frankenstein’s monster to the prospect of superhuman AI’s, we’ve always been fascinated by non-human minds. In her new show, Alice will attempt to explain our world to a brilliant, but naive newly created artificial mind; touching on human topics such as our society of contradictions.

★★★★★ “A life-changer. A show that made you laugh and shiver, smile and cry” – Edinburgh Guide (UK)

★★★★★ “Innately, inescapably funny. Alice Fraser is a star” – Herald Sun

ROSIE WATERLAND
MUM SAYS MY MEMOIR IS A LIE – THE LIVE EVENT
APRIL 2018
Presented by Frontier Comedy

In 2015 Rosie Waterland wrote The Anti-Cool Girl, a book about her childhood with mentally ill, alcoholic, drug-addicted parents. There were foster homes, AA, overdoses. Adult Rosie navigated her way through eating disorders, Bachelor recaps and awkward Tinder dates. Then she had an epiphany: to embrace her true self – a girl who loves drinking wine in her underpants – and become an Anti-Cool Girl. It seemed everyone in the country read her critically acclaimed bestseller… except Rosie’s mother, Lisa, too lost in alcoholism to even think about it. Then, she unexpectedly got sober and finally read the book.

Mama Lisa had lots of thoughts – the first of which is that most of Rosie’s memoir is a straight-up lie. During this honest discussion, Rosie and Mama Lisa will go over highlights from their number one podcast, Mum Says My Memoir Is A Lie and talk about them in detail accompanied by photos and videos from the past. They’ll also give you the chance to ask them all the questions you’ve been dying to ask. Join Rosie and Mama Lisa for a hilarious, if brutally honest conversation in which they share (very different) memories, and lots and lots of laughs.

“Constant laughter, squirming and a rush of emotion… an inspiring show and very enjoyable to be a part of” – City Hub

“Utterly poignant and touching… Rosie is undoubtedly a great storyteller” – Scenestr
