Melbourne International Comedy Festival: The Resistance


The Resistance

Tickets on Sale NOW

After her critically acclaimed solo show, Savage, Alice Fraser is bringing a new hour to MICF. A show about the tumbledown house she grew up in, and the tumbledown people who lived in it, The Resistance is a show about timing and identity, about how to be good and what it is to be broken, and how to be human. 

Strength, power, resistance. Where do you stand when the chips are down? Who do you stand with? 

In 2015 Savage (SBS Comedy, ABC Radio, A Rational Fear) sold out seasons and earned astronomical critical acclaim at Melbourne International, Sydney and Canberra Comedy Festivals, as well as getting glowing reviews from some of the hardest critics in the business during her debut Edinburgh Fringe Festival season.

Now, The Resistance brings a new hour full of silly funny songs, silly funny jokes… and a bit of devastating human truth.
