Multi award-winning co-creator of Double Denim, Michelle Brasier, presents a new hour of comedy.


'Average Bear' sees Michelle building audiences a show filled with music and storytelling. Average is a bear frightened of hibernation, and very proud of how tall she's gotten.

It's heartbreaking and hilarious, with material on grief, joy, possums and sheds.

Here are five reasons to see Michelle.

One

It's different, it's nice, it's unusual. We've seen Michelle on our screens and stages for a while now but we've never seen her like this. From Shaun Micallef's 'Mad As Hell' to 'Get Krackin'' to countless collaborations with comedy group Aunty Donna, Michelle has brought the belly laughs for many years now. This new show uses music to tell us a story about a bear and a personal story about loss, grief and standing still.

Two

Awards are fancy. As part of Double Denim (she says, the pants half) she has collected nominations for Green Room Awards (Best Cabaret), Golden Gibbo (Best Independent Show) and taken home the Directors' Choice Award at Melbourne International Comedy Festival as well as the Sydney Comedy Festival's Best Newcomer award. If you're the kind of person who cares about reviews and awards but you've never seen her before, you can trust she's a sure thing.


Three

That voice. To put it plainly, the girl can really belt out a tune.

Four

It's all in the family. Michelle will be performing with her partner, Tim Lancaster on guitar along with their dog making appearances in some cities. It will honestly just be interesting to see if it all comes crashing down. Leave work at the door when you come home? Not for these two.

Five

It's about a bear! Bears are cute, bears are big, bears take up space. 'Paddington' was a hit so why not 'Average Bear'?

Michelle Brasier was due to play comedy festivals which have been cancelled as a result of coronavirus.
