Work In Progress: Sara Pascoe, John Robins
A double bill featuring work in progress from Sara Pascoe and John Robins...
John Robins - An hour of new material from the award winning Leicester Festival regular.
Sara Pascoe vs History
Mostly a show about failed relationships, mine, my parents and Henry VIII's. Also a bit of feminist rhetoric and a rant about monogamy...
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.
