Sara Pascoe

Sara Pascoe appearing at this event

Sara Pascoe is a British writer, stand-up comedian and actress. She has appeared in a number of television programmes - Campus, Live At The Apollo, QI, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week among others - as well as an all-female sketch show and her own Edinburgh show, and runs comedy club The House Of Mirth. Sara's stand-up is influenced by her joint favourite heroes, Jodie Marsh and Winston Churchill. 'Always intelligent and occasionally exquisite' (The Independent) '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). Sara Pascoe was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2017 and 2016.
