About Alice

Alice is an actor and comedian from North London. Here's a glimpse of what she's currently up to.

THEATRE

Alice trained at Jacques Lecoq in Paris. She is an experienced immersive theatre performer and after working as a performer for 2 years with Punchdrunk she is now their Enrichment Assistant Director. She is also an artistic director of Bric à Brac, an international company formed at Jacques Lecoq in 2014. Their newest show Mustard Doesn’t Go With Girls is soon to embark on a tour after critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019. Praise for Bric à Brac:

"Come for laughs, stay for genre-defying-artsy-wonderment." Time Out

“Piñata is a burst of bright, weird art comedy made by bright, weird comedians." John Henry Falle, Edinburgh Best Newcomer Nominee

Alice gigs on the London circuit (and wherever she can get a train to) as a character comedian, MC and stand-up. She toured her first solo hour, Extra Curricular, in 2017 to the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes. She is also part of clowning double act, Alice&Lisa who regularly MC events and will be doing their first Edinburgh Fringe show in 2019.

EDUCATION

Alice is passionate when it comes to teaching theatre and comedy to young people of all abilities. She works freelance with schools, sixth form colleges and youth theatres to create tailored workshops including the Lecoq approach and working with text. She also launched her own company at the end of 2017, Hilarity Academy, whose mission it is to bring excellent comedy workshops run by gigging comedians to a whole range of young people around London. They have received BBC Children In Need funding for the next three years to establish a home in St Margaret's House in Bethnal Green.

She has run workshops in youth theatres, schools and in festivals alongside companies such as Gecko and Disney.
