Sarah Millican is an award-winning stand-up comedian and writer.
Since winning the 2008 if.comedy Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for her debut solo show, Sarah Millican’s Not Nice, Sarah has fast-established herself as a household name, being nominated three times for The British Comedy Awards People’s Choice: Queen of Comedy and winning the award in 2011. In 2013 she was also nominated for the British Comedy Awards Best Female TV Comic for the fourth time, her eighth nomination in total.
On top of this raft of awards and nominations, Sarah‘s debut DVD, Chatterbox Live!, is the biggest selling stand-up DVD by a female comedian of all time, shifting over 150,000 units in the first five weeks of release alone. Latest title Sarah Millican: Outsider was released in November 2016 and went straight to number one in the sales chart upon release.
A consummate live performer, she has also notched up countless appearances on top comedy TV shows including QI, Mock the Week, Have I Got News For You, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Big Fat Quiz, Live at the Apollo, The Jonathan Ross Show and as a headliner on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. Sarah’s very own series, The Sarah Millican Television Programme, combined TV-inspired stand-up and unique interviews with some of her favourite TV stars.
Sarah has also written and performed two series of Sarah Millican’s Support Group for Radio 4 and in June 2012 Sarah began writing her own column for national magazine the Radio Times. In 2014 Sarah started Standard Issue, an online magazine for women.
After two critically acclaimed, sell-out Edinburgh Fringe runs in 2008/9, Sarah returned to Edinburgh in August 2010 with a brand new show, Chatterbox. An unqualified success, Sarah capped the brilliant sell-out run with a nomination for the much sought-after Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award, affirming her status as one of the most exciting comics in the country. In the autumn of 2010 she embarked on her first national tour, also named Chatterbox, which completely sold out and in March 2011 announced her second national tour, Thoroughly Modern Millican, which sold over 190,000 tickets. The tour proved exceptionally popular with extra dates added up and down the country and an unprecedented 13 sold out nights at the Newcastle Tyne Theatre. Spring 2014 saw Sarah complete on her third sold-out national tour, Sarah Millican: Home Bird. Her fourth tour, Outsider, was also a sell-out and concluded in September 2016.
