'Daniel Burt and Aleisha McCormack might just become the Mike Nichols and Elaine May of Australian Comedy' - The Age.
In 2012-13 Aleisha toured the country with her new one-woman show ‘How to get Rich,’ directed by Julia Zemiro. Set on a plane, How to get Rich is about a journey, taking a risk for love, bad bikini waxes and how many worst case ‘relationship scenarios’ you can conjure up during a 23-hour flight. The show was also featured at the 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
'This strong, intelligent one-woman show is like a warm hug from a friendly acquaintance. It’s the perfect vehicle to showcase the potential possessed by both McCormack as a performer, and Zemiro and McCormack as crowd-friendly comedy writers.' - Siobhan Argent, Crikey
'It's McCormack's knack for presenting harrowing life experiences that have you in tears (of laughter) that sets her comedy apart.' - Beat Mag
