Alice Brine is a comedian, actress, writer and director from Wellington, New Zealand.
Alice began performing comedy in 2015 and it was clear from the onset she was a real talent. In a bizarre but deserved turn of events she found herself supporting Ed Byrne on tour in only her third ever gig.
She has had a remarkably quick rise to prominence on the New Zealand comedy scene, selling out two consecutive festival runs with her shows ‘Brinestorm’ and ‘No one Puts Briney In The Corner’ respectively. The latter of those shows earned her a nomination for the prestigious Billy T award, the highest accolade of the festival with previous winners including Rose Matafeo and Guy Montgomery.
Her honest, candid and likeable onstage persona saw her popularity grow and it wasn’t long before she was hand picked to support Alan Carr on his tour of the South Pacific. Since then she has appeared on a raft of shows including 7 Days – The NZ equivalent of Mock The Week and 8 out of 10 cats.
She also recently made headlines with an expertly observed analogy about consent that has since been shared over 5 million times and counting.
Having firmly established herself in New Zealand she moved to London in 2018 to further her burgeoning stand up career. She is currently working towards a debut at The Edinburgh Fringe in 2020.
