Average Bear sheds light on Michelle’s personal experience living in the shadows of an hereditary illness, whilst simultaneously weaving in the fictional story of Average, a bear with a problematic fear of hibernation. Heartbreaking and hilarious, Average Bear yo-yos between grief and joy whilst reminding audiences that life is too short to be serious and too short to waste, often at the same time.
As seen on in Aunty Donna’s Big Old House Of Fun (Netflix), Why Are You Like This (ABC, Netflix), Australian Lockdown Comedy Festival (Stan) and ABC’s Mad As Hell, Utopia, Whovians and Get Krackin’.
“Audience wowed by ‘miracle ‘ of a show… In a word: wow…. nothing can prepare you for the pure magic of Average Bear.” ★★★★★ – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
“Michelle Brasier doesn’t mean to be rude, she’s sure that all of our funerals will be a hoot – but her dad’s was the funniest. 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.” ★★★★★ – CHORTLE
