Alice Frick is a comedian, actress, and a writer and producer, originally from Austria, based in London. As an alumna of the University of Economy and Business Administration Vienna, Alice also holds an MA in Acting from the University of Essex (East 15).
Alice started stand-up in Austria in 2016 after winning an award (“Grazer Kleinkunstvogel”). She has been featured on a few TV shows in Germany (WDR, Comedy Central), and moved to Los Angeles where she started doing comedy in English. In 2010 Frick moved to London where she has set up her own comedy night, with an all-female line-up, called: “Laughing Labia” to redress the gender balance on stage and support female comedians. This show has been a sell-out show and is now also available as a podcast.
Alice has also produced and acted in various award-winning short movies (such as “Postmodern Times”). In 2015 she co-wrote her first feature film called: “Shop of little pleasures”. She has produced the movie in the following year. This film has been in the official selection of over 17 international film festivals (e.g. Montreal, Austin, Sydney), has won 12 prizes with 19 nominations and got released in the Austrian cinemas in October 2018.
Alice is currently working on a sitcom, based on her stand-up shows. The sitcom is called: “What the Frick” and the pilot has been released online as a web-series in 2018.
She also does a regular comedy v-log on youtube and a blog on Medium.
Frick has been seen live on stage at for example: Komedia (Brighton), The Bill Murray (London), L-Fest Main Stage, Sziget Festival (Hungary), Frog and Bucket (Manchester) Comedy Store (Los Angeles), Quatsch Comedy Club (Germany), Diva Literary Festival (Birmingham), London Pride, Coventry Pride, Brighton Pride, Host of the European Lesbian Conference, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Brighton Fringe Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival, and a few Austrian basements.
