Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill.

'Pascoe uses erudite references as just one strand of an offbeat worldview, offset by moments of gloriously deliberate dumbness and delivered with nothing less than full-megawatt charisma' (The Guardian)
'... defiantly idiosyncratic and highly accessible' (Evening Standard).

Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk).
