Fresh from a sold-out season in the UK, award-winning comedian, singer and actor Michelle Brasier makes her return to Canberra to perform The Trilogy – a triple bill featuring her three critically acclaimed shows: Average Bear, Reform, and Legacy.

Average Bear
Thursday 14 March 2024, 6.30pm
Comedy star Michelle Brasier’s all-singing, all-joking, all-heartbreaking show – about her experience living in the shadows of a hereditary illness – has been a rocket to acclaim. It’s received rave reviews and multiple awards at Sydney and Melbourne comedy festivals, had sold-out runs in London and the Edinburgh Fringe, plus a Paramount+ comedy special.

Average Bear tells the story of a family torn apart by grief, teenage fumblings in the dark and a bear with a deathly fear of hibernation. It reminds us that life is too short to waste and too long to take seriously.

Reform is a cautionary tale of an online scam and the urge to empathise with, understand, and become the emergency contacts of those who have done us wrong. A theatrical hour of storytelling and music, backed musically by Tim Lancaster and Jordan White.

Maybe the real Facebook Marketplace is the friends we make along the way.

Michelle is on a plane, watching a documentary about pandas, trying to solve a mystery.

In 2020, at Lido cinema, Michelle was handed an envelope with her name on it containing $10.50 in mostly coins. But it wasn’t for her. Legacy is the search for another Michelle Brasier and the exploration of all the other women one woman could have been if she’d made different choices.

Reaching out to strangers isn’t always a good idea but Michelle has made lots of mistakes on the internet before. She might as well keep going. It’s about sliding doors, the myth of Narcissus and building a legacy, whatever that is.

Can women really have it all? Is it a good idea to fly United Airlines? Will the $10.50 make it to it’s rightful owner?
