EDINBURGH COMEDY AWARD NOMINEE
Sara is an American writer turned stand-up living in London. While Stateside, she wrote for Vanity Fair, published two essay collections, and earned the role of host for the hit U.S. storytelling show, The Moth. This, in turn, gave her the bug for live performance. It also introduced her to her (British) husband, which prompted an eventual move to the UK. Since she started stand-up she has been nominated as Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Festival and appeared on Live at the Apollo, The Guilty Feminist, BBC R4Xtra, and Dave Gorman’s “Modern Life is Goodish”.
Her mix of unvarnished stories from her own life and those she meets have helped her skyrocket up the British comedy scene, as audiences have fallen in love with her gossipy, charming and outrageous stand-up.
“When you aren’t squirming, you’re laughing out loud.” Los Angeles Times
“Sara Barron is the reigning queen of New York’s live storytelling scene. In The Harm in Asking she proves she’s even better written down.” Jon Ronson, author of The Psychopath Test
“An excellent line in cynicism about sex, life and friendship.” Evening Standard
“Filthy and fearless.” Daily Telegraph
A brilliantly wry and award winning comic, Chris Stokes has been performing stand-up professionally since 2009. His career has seen him support Milton Jones, Pete Firman and Stewart Francis on tour, appeared on ‘Dave’s One Night Stand’, BBC Radio 4, 5Live, BBC Three and Radio X and take five critically acclaimed solo shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. With a hilarious and erudite turn of phrase, Stokes plays on social misconceptions, dismantling them both on stage and on the page via gag-packed first-hand anecdotes told with a charming and offbeat sincerity.
