About This Festival

After an entirely sold out season at Melbourne International Comedy Fest in 2017, Inspiring Australia is proudly funding Parasites Lost to be part of FRINGE WORLD Festival in Perth!

The story of one woman, who has contained multitudes.

You’re never alone, when you’ve got a parasite. Ten years of travelling and working in Asia and Africa, Alanta has seen a few things. And eaten a few things. And yelled her lunch into not an inconsequential number of toilets.

Alanta's job was to teach people about how to avoid diseases. In the process she contracted most of the world’s least pleasant parasites. Essentially she’s terrible at her job. Come on an adventure, across the globe and through Alanta’s intestine; and learn about some of the world’s cheekiest micro-organisms, and how Alanta contracted each of them. Not a show for the faint of heart.

Parasites Lost is equal parts scientific, entertaining and comedic. It is a pathos-addled adventure across the globe and under the microscope. Discover brain-controlling fungi, living Hollywood beauty treatments, and parasites living right under your nose. Literally, under your nose. Right now.
