Sara, who sold out her entire run at last year’s Edinburgh Festival with her critically feted show, LadsLadsLadswill be joined by some of the UK’s most exciting comedy talent for an exclusive, one night only, stand up gig for Comic Relief. 

A variety of comedians will support Sara including Jamali Maddix (Vice series Hate Thy Neighbour, Chortle Student Comedian of the Year), Larry Dean (Live at the Apollo, Roast Battle), Rachel Parris (Murder in SuccessvilleThe Mash Report), Catherine Bohart (BBC New Talent Hotlist 2017) and Steen Raskopoulos (Top Coppers, Barry Award nominee).

Sara expressed her excitement about the show saying: “I’m super excited to be heading to the Edinburgh Fringe for this year’s Comic Relief stand-up show. The city is always buzzing and it’s a brilliant place to discover the hottest comedy talent. I’ll be sharing the stage with some of the best comedians on the circuit so it’s a great chance for the audience to enjoy them all in one place. It’s even better knowing that it’s for a great cause - money raised from the gig will enable Comic Relief to improve people’s lives here in the UK and around the world. Grab your ticket now and let’s have a fun night.” 

The show will be held at the most prestigious venue at the festival – the Assembly Hall, at 8pm on Monday 20th August.
