One day the sun will explode and wipe out any trace that human civilisation was ever here. Until then, let’s salsa!
Sarah Campbell: Isn't It Fun???????: A stand-up show about doing fun wrong, and finding joy in unexpected places.
“Very funny” The Guardian
Having spent the last couple of years writing for Russell Howard’s Good News and Have I Got News For You, and appearing in BBC3’s Live At The Electric and Sky sitcoms Spy and The Spa, comedian Sarah Campbell is making her long-overdue solo debut on the fringe. And she’s got quite a bit to say.
“One of the stand-out stand-ups of the future” British Comedy Guide
With a persona one critic once described as “Blue Peter meets Children of The Corn,” Sarah talks about feeling out-of-step with everyone else, about not enjoying the things she’s supposed to, and taking an odd glee in some lesser known pleasures. Think chronic anxiety and glow-sticks. Think failing at actual holidays versus happy hours spent on Tripadvisor searching for reviews containing the word “cataclysm.” There’ll be highs, there’ll be lows and there’ll be some perfectly tolerable mid-range feelings.
“Hugely talented…If you haven’t heard the name Sarah Campbell yet, then log it into the old memory banks, you’ll be hearing from her again” Time Out
Despite only now making her solo debut this year, Sarah has written and appeared in a number of Edinburgh comedy shows. Way back in 2005 she starred with Sarah Solemani (Him & Her, Bad Education) in Pray For The Souls Of Martha and Veronica, in 2008 she teamed up with Grainne Maguire to bring their hit London club The Cheese and Pineapple Club to the fringe (**** The List), in 2010 she showed her stand-up promise in her half-hour show Sarah Campbell: 27 Up, and in 2011 she and double-act partner Amy Hoggart performed a sketch show Christmas For Two: Friends With You. They are now slated to appear on CBBC’s version of Live at The Apollo.
In 2010 I did a stand-up show based on concept of the legendary documentary series 7 Up in which participants are filmed every seven years of their lives.
27 Up was about my life to date. The next show in the series, Sarah Campbell: 54 Up, is due in 2037. At the end of 27 Up I gave the audience free tickets to 54 Up in the form of fridge magnets.
Every so often I bump into a ticket holder. Some of them even have the tickets on them.
