Doors open: 7:30pm
Show time: 8:15pm - 9:15pm
A solo hour from the multi award winning co-creator (and pants half) of Double Denim, countless collaborations with Aunty Donna and Shaun Micallef’s Mad As Hell. Michelle is building you an hour of music and story-telling. Average is a bear who is frightened of hibernation and very proud of how tall she’s gotten.
Heartbreaking and hilarious, this is a show about grief and joy and possums and sheds. Good luck, little bear.

Average Bear is an ode to staring into the void and pulling a funny face, a challenge the endlessly charming Brasier was seemingly made for. A standing ovation is as inevitable as death, with everyone present seemingly wiping an eye and glad to be alive. Hard to ask for much more than that. – 5 STARS – Chortle
“A full spectrum of LOLs (and some SOBs)” – 4 STARS – THE AGE 2021“An anarchic imp full of childish mischief and coquettish hypnotism. With an excellent singing voice and the ability to make the word ‘yes’ hilarious, Brasier is intensely watchable -– even with a washing basket on her head” – The Skinny (UK)
“Bonnie Tyler ain’t got nothin on this girl – Michelle Brasier delivers blow after blow of ruthless comic energy, wrapped up in a spectacular vocal” – Music Theatre Review (UK)
“A wonderful comedic sensibility to her wayward stage persona, with hilarious facial expressions and use of voice” – The Age
“Michelle Brasier is like a deranged Catherine Tate character who has bussed in from Gisborne” – Herald Sun
