Fraser also is willing to joke about the practicalities, both logistically and financially, of her job during the pandemic. From Zoom shows to satirical podcasts (she’s on the mic for several; among them, “The Gargle” (an offshoot of “The Bugle”), and her “Tea With Alice” which she migrated to Patreon). She also dropped a line that I absolutely love: “How do I write jokes? Urgently. As if I were diffusing a bomb.” Timing! 33 days ago

An excellent show. Well paced, well connected and funny throughout. It's a very honest, sincere and thoughtful show. The jokes are well written, well observed and intelligent.
Highly recommended. 8.5/10

More crucially, she knows how to inject some silly into all this, so the hour, while full of food for thought, is also rich with delightful jokes, both literate and playful, usually both at the same time.

Alice is a seasoned performer with an assured professional delivery, genuine charm and some killer jokes. Mesmerising us with intelligent comedy that is gathering an appreciative following of fans, she also has a way of subtly giving the audience ideas to think about once they have stopped laughing.

Edinburgh Guide (5/5 stars) 48 days ago

The breathtakingly funny, relatable and meaningful bon mots that comprise Chronos are set amidst the premise of Alice stitching this show together, last minute, across a train ride from London to Glasgow in March 2020. Consistently dynamic and compelling, Alice Fraser may be unorthodox, but that is her charm, and she has it in droves.
