On the Couch with Claire Pearson

Claire Pearson AAR On the CouchWho is Claire Pearson?
I’m an actor, writer and producer who enjoys making people laugh and have been trying to do so for 15 years.

What would you do differently to what you do now?
Not much, but when I was younger I thought I could have been an archaeologist or an astronomer… that did not happen!

Who inspires you and why?
Anyone who takes a risk to do what they’ve gotta do to make a difference.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
I hope to make an impact with the shows I makes and to give people another perspective on things, especially in this show, which is looking at self help!

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Look, pretty much anywhere including the Greek Islands, Spain, Italy and Austria would be fine to return to!

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
Melbourne has so much to offer depending on the time of year – Fed Square, ACMI, NGV and the theatre as a start!

What are you currently reading?
I’m 20 weeks pregnant, so What to Expect when you’re Expecting!

What are you currently listening to?
In preparation for my show, I listen to an Esther Hicks video each day.

Happiness is?
Come to our show to find out!

What does the future hold for you?  
A short season at MICF, starting a family and taking whatever opportunity to perform comes along!

Claire has created and features in Esther Hicks is “Vibrationally” Speaking – which will be presented at Laneway Learning Melbourne as part of the 2019 Melbourne International Comedy Festival: 11 – 14 April. For more information, visit: www.comedyfestival.com.au for details.
