ALICE IS AN AWARD WINNING WRITER, BROADCASTER, PERFORMER AND COMEDIAN.
Her sold out solo shows have been commissioned as podcast and TV specials on Amazon Prime, NextUp and the ABC, as well as being performed to critical acclaim at Festivals including the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Canberra Comedy Festival, Perth Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival, New Zealand and Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Alice is a regular writer and performer on BBC Radio‘s flagship satirical news comedy show The News Quiz, as well as appearing regularly on the ABC’s Thank God It’s Friday, the Australian Podcast Award winning A Rational Fear and is so beloved as a regular co-host on The Bugle that she was given her own spin-off shows, the deranged and experimental The Last Post, and The Gargle.
Alice’s personal podcast ‘Tea with Alice’ delights her thoughtful and clever audiences and demonstrates how drinking tea with a rotating cast of bright and brilliant guests has the potential to solve all the world’s problems (even if just for a little while). Her trilogy of stand-up shows Savage, The Resistance and Empire were combined as The Alice Fraser Trilogy, a podcast that was voted the Best Australian Podcast of 2018 by Apple Australia.
Her four documentaries for Audible on Meditation 101, Habit Change, Wellness and Work Life Balance are extremely popular, with In The Habit being in the top 5 most downloaded titles on the app in its release year.
