We're sorry to report that due to extended commitments abroad, Sarah has regretfully had to cancel her shows in Bath.

A brand new hour of charming stand-up, comic storytelling and characters by the Melbourne-born, London-based comedian.

As well as playing comedy clubs in London, Ireland, Wales and Scotland, Sarah has appeared on BBC Radio 4 and 6 Music, plus hosted her own long-running radio show on Dalston's NTS Radio 'Sarah Bennetto's Mix-Tape', as well as at her cult favourite annual live radio show from backstage at Glastonbury Festival for WorthyFM. Sarah is the brains behind Storytellers’ Club, which tours internationally, and guests regularly on bonkers podcasts and panel shows in the UK and Australia.

Sarah Bennetto’s past solo comedy shows for Edinburgh Fringe, Adelaide, Perth Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival include: a sitcom about office temping, the true story of having lunch with Prince Charles at the Palace, a hour-long ode to boardgames and Victorian parlour games, a study of her insanely good luck (she’s won a car, holidays, the lottery), staging her own funeral live, and more recently: every mistake she’s ever made, presented in list form. This will be a new hour of jokes in preparation for the upcoming 2018 Edinburgh Fringe. It will be called something like "The United Colours of Bennetto" or "We're All Definitely Gonna Die, So Let's Bloody Do It". Something like that. You get the picture.

"Self-depreciating, dark, honest and genuinely funny. One of the most enjoyable and original shows I’ve seen this year. It had me laughing out loud more times than I could count. A solid hours of laughs, it culminates in a truly epic finale." ****1/2 The Advertiser newspaper, Adelaide

"A sophisticated mix of stand-up and character comedy, Bennetto succeeds in harnessing the full power of an instinctive comedic mind." **** Fest magazine, Edinburgh

"Bennetto delivers effervescent, confident and well-structured stand-up. Her tales of outrageous fortune are suffused with urbanity and wisdom, and buoyed by a lightly rendered sense of nostalgia" **** The Age, Melbourne
