They’re here, one’s queer, and they never get over anything. Join Alex and Alison for an hour of fun, trauma, and everything in between.
Alex and Alison are mixed-race women with ADHD, anxiety and a passion for talking about feminism. They’re really fun at parties.
Alison can’t sit still, Alex can’t get out of bed. Alison loves Greek mythology, Alex thinks Troy is a basketball player who needs to keep his head in the game. Alison is queer, Alex is decidedly straight (yes, it was a choice, and yes, she regrets it).
An hour of stand-up comedy from two people who were definitely, probably, bullied at school. Critics (i.e. former bullies) have described it as “Nanette-Lite for people who’ve not seen Nanette.”
Alex Bertulis-Fernandes and Alison Zrada are two rising stand-ups. They both met at Soho Theatre's Comedy Lab Plus, becoming part of Soho Young Company. Alex performed her previous show, White Chicks 2, as part of their Soho Rising festival. Alex is also a So You Think You're Funny? Semi-Finalist and a 2Northdown New Act Semi-Finalist. Alison is a So You Think You're Funny? Semi-Finalist and a LBGTQ+ New Comedian of the Year Finalist.

Praise for previous work (Alex Bertulis-Fernandes)
“Alex’s material’s so prescient at the moment...so many good lines in that set...I laughed a lot...I just thought there was an awful lot of astute material there...and a really great performing style.”
