GLACE CHASE (formerly Rick Viede) has been shortlisted for numerous awards and won the Shaw Prize for essays. Her satiric ‘Aspiring Personality’ alter-ego Glace Chase, a self-described ‘total bottom’, has played to critical acclaim throughout Australia including seasons at Belvoir St Downstairs Theatre, Melbourne Comedy Festival, Mardi Gras Festival, The Butterfly Club, and Feast Festival. Glace Chase traverses stand-up comedy, cabaret, dubious investigational reportage and take-no-prisoners audience interaction with savage wit and vivacious humour. She received a Highly Commended mention at the SPAA Fringe Pitching competition in 2010 and was shortlisted for Movie Extra Network’s WebFest for their concept Glace Chase vs. New York. Chase is a fixture in the downtown performance scene of NYC and can be found leading unsuspecting tourists on fun, hilarious and strangely informative tours of NYC with her own tour guide business, Glace Chase’s Dream Queen Tours, or on their YouTube infotainment show, Glace, on the Total Bottom Network (TBN). Chase’s plays include A Hoax, Whore, Oranges and Lemons, and Gull.
