A comedy podcast about things that are actually sad. Alice Fraser brings you a series of three solo stand-up shows, that explore the boundary between comedy and tragedy. You’ll meet her family, her foes and the extremely strange community she grew up in. Each show is in two acts, it will make more sense if you choose Act 1 first.

I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
