Sardonic, unique, and downright weird – Gen Fricker is a young star on the national comedy circuit. With her unique blend of sassy stand up and dark musical experimentation, Gen delivers with a butter-wouldn’t-melt-in-her-mouth smile.

Since making her comedy debut in 2011, Fricker has sold out seasons of solo shows at the Melbourne, Perth and Sydney Comedy Festivals, as well as appearing at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival and Splendour in The Grass.

In 2014, Fricker opened nationally for US comic Reggie Watts on his 2014 Hello Humans tour.

In addition to stand up, Fricker has appeared on Dirty Laundry Live, Legally Brown, was a columnist for the Sydney Morning Herald, worked as a writer/performer on ABC 2’s The Roast [Season 2] and Triple J’s Chatback with Tom Ballard, and currently co-hosts Weekend Arvos on Triple J.
