    Do you remember CrossBread? For a brief time, the Australian hip-hop act lit up the Christian music scene brighter than the star of Bethlehem but burnt out faster than Sodom and Gomorrah. CrossBread is a new comedy series starring Megan Washington, Chris Ryan, John Waters, Kate McLennan, Aaron Chen and Sami Shah with original music from Megan Washington.

    PRESENTS — Judith Lucy - Overwhelmed and Dying

    PRESENTS — Judith Lucy - Overwhelmed and Dying

    Comedian Judith Lucy is totally overwhelmed by the state of the world and her own life. The family she grew up in is dead, she's a lot closer to dying than she wants to be and now after a particularly bad break-up, she's single again.

    So, great news Australia! Judith Lucy is going to solve her problems, and yours, over the course of a mere eight episodes, simply by chatting to some experts and having some vaguely humiliating experiences so you don't have to.

    You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll be absolutely thrilled that you are not Judith Lucy. Episode 1 out on March 6th.

Thinking Comedy

A brilliant stand up set that is funny, deep and moving- a fantastic listen. Make sure you listen to the bonus interview with her father too.

Truly amazing

Alice Fraser deserves so many awards for these stand-up shows. They are philosophical, beautiful, full of characters, with a diverse range of emotions.

On top of that the production quality superb. A truly special trilogy and a great medium to share them. I hope to listen to more in the future.
