Sarah Kendall

Sarah Kendall shot to fame in her native Australia after winning the Raw Comedy competition in 1998, and has enjoyed a flourishing career in the UK. She’s toured internationally and performed at the Hong Kong Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Adelaide Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, Just for Laughs in Montreal and many more. Sarah has been nominated for a host of awards, including the Perrier. Her TV credits include Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC 3) Beehive (E4/Channel 4) and Edinburgh and Beyond (Paramount). She has also been a panellist on Radio Four’s Dilemma, The Now Show, News Quiz and Best Behaviour.

In 2014 Sarah spoke out about how she was threatened with sexual violence by a heckler at a show, and how she based a routine around it but “betrayed the seriousness of the incident”. Her work is fresh, funny, and guaranteed to make you laugh and think.

Reviews

“A charming, vivid and absorbing storyteller” – Chortle (2015)

“This copper-haired comic’s show… certainly has plenty of laughs, but also a more serious subtext about the agony of adolescence.” – (Standard, 2015)

Here’s her Video: Edinburgh and Beyond.

Sarah will join Tiff Stevenson at our Comedy Night on Saturday 1st of August.
