“My sister tells people that we’re all funny in our family, but I’m the only one who gets paid for it” – Sarah Millican

There are some tough gigs in the world of stand-up comedy, and then there’s being first on stage, performing your first-ever gig in the back end of a scary pub in Newcastle. “All the women were just sat with their arms folded thinking, ‘Come on then, make me laugh!’ It went really well and I guess that’s what started me off. My ex-husband might not like me, but look at all the people who do. It’s just therapy! I did 5 minutes in a batwing top and for 2 and a half minutes they stared and for 2 and a half minutes they laughed. Then a man told me off for a coffin joke. I loved it.”

Her debut Edinburgh Fringe show in 2008 saw her become only the second woman in more than 17 years to win the coveted if.comedy Best Newcomer Award for her bittersweet show, “Sarah Millican’s Not Nice.” he show charted the failure of her seven-year marriage and how she had to move back in with her parents after she divorced.

As well as being a hugely successful stand-up comedian, Sarah has made a number of appearances on high profile shows such as: 8 out of 10 Cats; Have I Got News For You; Mock The Week, and You Have Been Watching. She has also featured in the Manchester edition of Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. More recently we’ve seen Sarah on David Mitchell’s panel show, The Bubble.

If all that wasn’t enough for you, she can also make a honking horn sound with her mouth and she’s good at knowing which painkillers go with what. Both of which come in very handy, we’re sure.
