Also-ran, noun: a loser in a race or other contest. An undistinguished or unsuccessful person.
When Elizabeth's life coach warned her “you're the composite of the people you spend the most time with”, she sat down to work out exactly who was responsible for her being the kind of person who needs a life coach.
Her thirties are looming and Elizabeth has a lot of ground to make up. They tell you life is about the journey. It’s not. It’s definitely a race.

“Unpretentious storytelling and more straight-up comedy... Also-ran is a comedic success.” Illegitimate Theatre
Stand up by two of Melbourne's stealthiest up and coming comedians, Natalie Harris (Secrets MICF 2014, Three Little Gigs MICF 2013) and Elizabeth Davie (Party Banana MICF 2014). Natalie stares and smiles at strangers too much and Elizabeth is a Gemini. Inner city creeps with only the best of intentions.
“Real, honest, relatable and just plain funny.” Squirrel Comedy
Party Banana is the party you never wanted to attend, hosted by the people you never wanted to meet. Audience members take part in the show as guests at the opening of the insufferably hip Tristan and Bianca's art studio/record label. Come in, mingle, and admire the art. There'll be drinks. You're going to need them.
Party Banana sold out at both the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Melbourne Fringe Festival - and not just because there was a bar in the show.
Party Banana was created by Elizabeth Davie and written and devised collaboratively with Kieran Bullock, Glenn Luck, James Rosier, Hannah Camilleri, Genelle Lentini and Molly McKew.

"Party Banana is an immersive show filled with lovable but cringe-worthy characters who’ll get under your skin in more ways than one." Herald Sun
