short documentary (22 minutes)
A dirty street-style documentary about stand up comedienne Alice and her daily routine at one of the world’s biggest Comedy Festivals “The Fringe” in Edinburgh 2012.
This film shows a day in the life of Alice, a stand up comedienne from Austria, who now lives in London. We follow her in this fast-paced and entertaining documentary as she performs for four weeks in the Edinburgh fringe festival, which is one of the largest stand-up comedy festivals in the world. We watch her everyday routine, her performances, and interviews that she gives to get insight into the life of being a fringe comedienne and it leaves us questioning if the glory of being onstage follows her to the streets. In Alice’s performance she talks about coming out gay to her religious grandma, which is one of the best parts of her show and the viewer gets to sit back and see how some of her interviewers handle the topic.
