Ashley Apap

A live stream of Ashley Apap's show RESTLESS that you can see in person or online. Being unsettled is a default for Ashley Apap. Finding calm in the ridiculousness of existence, she is most at ease when embracing chaos. In RESTLESS, Ashley analyses if being comfortable is at all achievable, or a pipe dream used to quiet our turbulent minds. An ode to finding your place in a contradictory world, RESTLESS is Ashley’s absurdist attempt at laughing in the face of her endless overwhelm. Through her offbeat performance style, clever misdirection and cheeky crowd work, she dissects and demonstrates the tension that propels her very being. Ashley will go to surprising lengths to balance the reassurance of her audience and her own satisfaction on stage. With cautious optimism and an enduring curiosity for unspoken truths, she asks showgoers if they too, are ever truly comfortable.Ashley Apap is a Melbourne/Naarm-based writer/comedian whose work focuses on melding accessibility, silliness and sincerity. Her debut Melbourne International Comedy Festival hour Ouch! was nominated for the 2022 Golden Gibbo Award and played to to sold out crowds and she's since been performing her high-energy stan-up, sketch, improv and musical comedy around Australia. Ashley recently made her professional acting debut in the new Malthouse Theatre work Telethon Kid and is part of the producing team of Melbourne’s beloved alternative comedy room Hairbrush Comedy. Her new video podcast 'Scamp' (produced with Stupid Old Studios for Powerd Media) is available on Powerd Media's new streaming platform that showcases content made by disabled artists. It encapsulates Ashley's colourful, quick, unique sense of humour in a world made by and for her relentless mind. Classified by The Age as having “great comic potential” and “a voice not often heard”, Ashley is a breath of fresh air in the Melbourne comedy scene. 'Great comic potential... a voice not often heard.' The Age'Apap is unapologetically and unashamedly brilliant.' Weekend Notes'Apap’s stand-up skills are exceptional... a natural performer and a gifted comic.' Theatre Travels'Ashley delivered an offbeat set but with such a charismatic and entrancing manner that she had the audience immediately engaged.' Hugging Comedians★★★★ Theatre Thoughts★★★★ Theatre People
