This has nothing to do with Leonardo DiCaprio. And it ain't about lettuce. It's about perspective - what we see, what we think we know and what is actually going on. You know what's underneath the tip of the iceberg? The rest of the iceberg. For all the moments where you think you understand the enormity of a situation, then the water drains and you step back to realise what you're really dealing with. Whether you choose to look or not, is up to you...

Full press release
Having had such an incredible Fringe in 2012 with her critically acclaimed, award-winning deeply personal show, The Hedgehog Dilemma, it was near-on impossible to believe that Felicity Ward would surpass herself in 2013. But indeed she did, and now she has become one of the Fringe's most favourite of performers.
The Iceberg has nothing to do with Leonardo DiCaprio. Or lettuce. Instead, it's about perspective - what we see, what we think now and what is actually going on. For all the moments where you think you understand the enormity of a situation, then the water drains and you step back and realise what you're really dealing with. You know what's underneath the tip of the iceberg? The rest of the iceberg. Whether you choose to look or not is up to you...
First seen on the Australian comedy scene in 2005 in Ten Network's popular sketch show The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, Felicity has since gone on to become one of Down-Under's favourite funny people, appearing in ABC's prominent music comedy quiz show Spicks and Specks, Thank God You're Here (Channel 7), Good News Week (Channel Ten) and has her own stand-up comedy special as part of ABC2's Warehouse Comedy. In 2008, she won Best Newcomer for the Melbourne Airport Award and has since been reeling in awards and nominations. 2012 was her year, with The Hedgehog Dilemma receiving a nomination, if not the award, at every major Australian festival.
She has toured internationally from London to LA to Hong Kong to Singapore, and in 2012 co-starred in Working Dog Productions' (the makers of The Castle and The Dish) Australian comedy feature film Any Questions For Ben? In her brief time in the UK she appeared on Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3) and from the Edinburgh Fringe was invited to perform The Hedgehog Dilemma in LA at the Hollywood Improv.
