Word geek comedian, writer, podcaster and performer Alice Fraser joins forces with truth-telling, Lebanese-born RAW Comedy 2019 winner Fady Kassab in this one off double header as a part of the digital comedy series, Humour Us. 

 

Alice Fraser

Comedian, writer, podcaster and performer Alice Fraser is also a word geek, insatiable academic, ex-corporate lawyer and banjo aficionado.

Alice studied law at Sydney University and English Literature (Rhetoric) at Cambridge before working as a lawyer in New York City. Hitting the NYC comedy stages at night soon saw her spending more time writing jokes than litigation and realising her passion for comedy outweighed her legal ambition. Alice has taken her passion around the world; writing, producing, directing and performing in award-winning shows to sell-out crowds and rave reviews from Edinburgh to London, New York to Cambridge and many places in between.

 

Fady Kassab

Lebanese-born, Sydney-based Fady Kassab was the 2019 winner of Australia’s most prestigious comedy competition, triple j’s RAW Comedy. His show-stopping performance, televised on SBS TV, saw him subsequently flown to that year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe where he was selected to feature in the Best of Edinburgh Showcase Show.

A childhood spent with 17 years of the Lebanese war as the backdrop, and his migration to Australia give Fady a unique perspective to draw from, and he credits the traumas of war with fuelling his optimistic approach to life and comedy in general. He speaks funny truths with dark undertones and approaches topics delicately and provocatively.
