The UK’s Sarah Callaghan is an award-winning comedian and writer who has taken the comedy scene by storm with her frank and fearless style.

A powerhouse mash-up of comedy and poetry, and already with two tours to Australia under her belt, this will be her first trip to New Zealand and she can’t wait to debut her new show here.

She’s won awards, and been nominated for some of the best including the Malcolm Hardee “Act Most Likely to Make a Million Quid”.
