“I still spend a lot of time in the Sainsbury’s looking at all the biscuit products that never made it to Australia.”

Lauded as one of the strongest and most unique comedic voices around, Laura Davis is unconventional, cathartic and exhilaratingly hilarious. Ghost Machine sees audience members returning multiple times to celebrate this darkly honest, constantly surprising, existential extravaganza. Winner: Best Indie Show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Best Comedy at Melbourne Fringe. ‘An original and provocative hour in the company of a unique mind’ **** (List).”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?
I came in 2017 for the first time to do my show ‘Cake in the Rain’ at Edinburgh and at Soho Theatre.
What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?
I moved from Australia where I’ve lived all my life, to London where I’ve lived for six weeks now. I still spend a lot of time in the Sainsbury’s looking at all the biscuit products that never made it to Australia.
Tell us about your show.
I wrote and toured this show GHOST MACHINE in 2015 throughout Australia and have been performing it ever since. I also toured it to Kuala Lumpur and it’s very hot dressing up as a ghost in the jungle.
It won best independent show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2015, and Best Comedy Show at Melbourne Fringe.
What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?
They should go and see Alice Fraser, ETHOS which is the show that I directed this year. They should also go and see James Nokise, over at The Stand.
