Sarah is a stand-up from Melbourne, now based in London. You can catch her doing new solo shows at the Edinburgh Fringe every year, music festivals, comedy clubs, and she can also be heard on BBC Radio 4, Glastonbury backstage radio and NTS’s Mix-Tape. She is the host of Storytellers’ Club, the cult comedians-telling-stories comedy club.
"One of the most enjoyable and original shows I’ve seen this year" ***** Adeleide Advertiser
"Succeeds in harnessing the full power of an instinctive comedic mind" **** Fest
She began performing comedy in 2010, quickly making her mark by becoming a Funny Women finalist the following year. In 2013 she won the Up The Creek ‘One To Watch’ award and was also a finalist in the Leicester Square Theatre New Act Competition. Sarah has since performed at some of the most prestigious comedy venues and festivals in the UK.
In 2014 she was named as ‘One To Watch’ by Time Out Magazine and in 2015 she took her critically-acclaimed debut hour show Elephant to the Edinburgh Fringe. A confessional exploration of escape and ambition, Elephant received great reviews across the board and Sarah was widely heralded as an exciting new comedic voice, a status cemented by her Malcolm Hardee Award nomination for ‘Act Most Likely To Earn A Million Quid’. She brought the show to the Soho Theatre for a run of shows in 2016, again to acclaim, and then on to the Perth and Sydney Comedy Festivals in Australia. August 2016 will see her return to the Fringe with eagerly-awaited follow-up, 24.
Sarah’s interest in stand-up comedy was sparked when she was lucky enough to study improv at Chicago’s Second City School, joining such prestigious alumni as Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Steve Carrell.
Phil began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.
His innovative stream-of-consciousness style, inspired by a harsh upbringing in the cruel and unforgiving conditions of middle-class rural Warwickshire, has seen him perform in clubs, arts centres and theatres all across the UK and helped build his reputation as having grown one of the largest beards in stand-up comedy.
He has recently been nominated for the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year Award 2014, and in 2013 was a semi-finalist in So You Think You’re Funny New Act of the Year Competition and a quarter finalist in the Amused Moose Laugh Off.
