Sarah is a disabled writer, actor, comedian and producer, and the current winner of the BAFTA Rocliffe award for BADASS.
“She’s very funny” – Dara O Briain.
Sarah is an up and coming talent – since the BAFTA win in 2020, she has gone on to appear on Channel 4’s The Last Leg discussing invisible disabilities, has written for Have I Got News For You, had her own comedy sketch commissioned by Channel 4 and is in talks with a number of production companies, both about developing her scripted
projects and pitching Sarah as on-screen talent for disabilities projects.
When Edinburgh 2020 was cancelled, Sarah developed her planned Edinburgh show into a TV script during lockdown, going on to win the award in the year it had a record number of applicants. It certainly made the months spent in lockdown with her Mum and Dad, and the isolation weight gain, seem a bit more worth it!)
As a stand-up comedian….she is a Funny Women semi-finalist and a Levity Festival finalist and is regularly booked by Angel Comedy, Off the Kerb and Laughing Horse. Her
Chemo Chat Show on YouTube featured guests including Phil Wang and Harriet Kelsey.
As an actress Sarah has City Lit training and performs her own sketches across social media, as well as professional gigs including playing Alice, the neighbour of a dominatrix sex worker in Miranda Kane’s sitcom Slaving Away.
As an advocate, Sarah has spoken in Parliament, addressing the Secretary of State fo Work and Pensions directly, about how the Universal Credit system was letting down cancer patients. She has had an open letter to Boris Johnson published by Macmillan Cancer Support about staff shortages in the NHS. And on Instagram, Sarah is busy
raising awards for invisible disabilities with her #StomaHeroes series where she recreates iconic pictures with her stoma bag in shot: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1s0pdpHlIR/
