Brendan Common"Intelligent smart comedy noir. One to keep an eye on. This guy has the potential for the big time,best original comedy I've seen "
LEE SIGERSON, FORMER MANAGER CARDIFF GLEE CLUB
"Winding through complex eerie channels of suppressed astonishment, this is the sort of comedy education you cannot pay for because it rarely exists' -SCOTT FITZGERALD, DIRECTOR OF CARDIFF COMEDY FESTIVALHis unique stage persona, supported by his material which jumps quickly from light to dark, matching his unusal demeanor.
This Goth comic will surprise you with his bizarre richness of his alternative worldview.

- Steve Bennet, Chortle"Even the depressed middle-aged men in polo shirts were amused."
- China Business News"Extravagantly bearded, nicely silly."
- Bath Echo
Sara is in the midst of a peri menopausal mid life crisis. She will happily take you on a bizarre journey that has not only ended relationships, her 25 year career, and got her sacked three times; she has been cautioned by the police, been forced to visit the food bank and found solace wandering round a disused prison by torchlight. Sara is the often unheard voice of middle aged women across the country who got their life a bit wrong.
“She had a nice set” Wes Packer, winner, So You Think You’re Funny 2006
