Award-winning comedian, singer, actor and co-creator of comedy duo Double Denim, Michelle Brasier, returns this year with her solo show, Average Bear

Average Bear sheds light on Michelle’s personal experience living in the shadows of an hereditary illness, whilst simultaneously weaving in the fictional story of Average, a bear with a problematic fear of hibernation. Heartbreaking and hilarious, Average Bear yo-yos between grief and joy whilst reminding audiences that life is too short to be serious and too short to waste, often at the same time.

As seen on ABC’s Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell, Utopia, Whovians and Get Krackin’, The Comedy Channel’s The Slot, feature film The Merger and Netflix’s Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun.

Average Bear is an ode to staring into the void and pulling a funny face, a challenge the endlessly charming Brasier was seemingly made for. A standing ovation is as inevitable as death, with everyone present seemingly wiping an eye and glad to be alive. Hard to ask for much more than that
