After a white-bred, middle class upbringing, Chris turned out an arty-trendy sort of try hard, and a magnet for dominant women. A product of his environment, Chris lives a life of weird repetitions with no time for rational thought.

His sharp-witted and daringly clever act has seen him steadily climb the comic ladder. In 1998 he won the title of The Comedian of the Year at the famous Harold Park Hotel in Sydney, past winners include the Umbilical Brothers, Flacco, Carl Barron and Kenny Graham. Chris was also successful in taking out the Grand Final for the 1999 Triple J Raw Comedy Competition, in Melbourne, which earned him a trip to Edinburgh Comedy Festival.

Chris’ clever, provocative and original style of comedy is guaranteed to crack them up where ever he goes.

While studying law at Sydney Uni, Alice was heavily involved in the theatre sports scene and the Sydney Law revue. Then after becoming a corporate lawyer and travelling the world, she did what most lawyers do. She started Stand-up comedy. Since then, she has performed in every country that she has lived in. London, Scotland, New York and back in OZ.

To watch Alice perform is like receiving a bunch of comedy flowers. I’m not talking about the bunch of flowers that squirts water at you, clowns have those and we all know that clowns live in the sewers and like to eat children. I mean it’s choc full of colours, laughs and just a delight to see.
