Some Details...

Sarah Millican has been making major waves in just 3 years as a pro with oodles of Geordie charm and ascerbic wit. Last year she won Edinburgh Festival’s coveted If.Comedy Newcomer Award and appeared on “Have I Got News For You?” and “8 Out Of 10 Cats” and next week she will grace primetime BBC1 Saturday night TV on Michael McIntyre’s brand new show, which looks set to propel her into the big time.

Millican's Not Nice. She received rave reviews and enjoyed sell-out audiences for the entire run with critics pinpointing her as a hot
new talent to keep an eye on. Recent television appearances include Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Have I Got News For You,

Sarah has recently performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, where she was nominated for the prestigious Barry
Award, and at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival. In August she will return to the Fringe with an all new, hotly anticipated show.

One to watch… you should be hearing a lot more from Sarah Millican soon ****
Scotsman
One of the hottest new things in Stand up
The Herald
On the 2008 If. Comedy Best Newcomer Award winning show Sarah Millican’s Not Nice
It requires exceptional skill to be a cruel yet likeable comedian and Sarah Millican nails the contradiction beautifully with a wonderfully
assured Fringe debut
The Scotsman ****
A mercilessly unsentimental wit…her set is as neatly constructed as her individual, triple-punchline jokes
The Daily Telegraph
It's credit to Millican's talent that her man-baiting isn't man-alienating; the blokes in the audience howl as loudly as the women.
There isn't a spare second in this gag-packed, deliciously dark show.
One of the hottest prospects on the UK circuit
Metro *****
British comedy needs a new female star and might just have got one
The Herald ****
She surely has one of the highest gags-per-minute counts on the Fringe, with punchlines arriving every few beats with unwavering
punctuality….Laughs come thick and fast.
Millican has a frank, self-effacing manner and an obtuse approach to writing that avoids clichés and refreshes the genre.
An impressive, and consistently funny, festival debut.
Chortle ****
A delightfully dirty and hilarious show.
Three Weeks ****
Millican’s gift is in her gentle, unthreatening delivery and the way she engages with the audience.
This is a fully crafted first show and a real delight
The Observer
The jokes feel fresh and ring true. And there are plenty of them.
The marriage failed but the comedy career is unlikely to.
The Guardian
Sarah Millican is one of the most talented newcomers I have seen in many years.
A perfectly formed hour.
Touching, witty and wonderfully ribald
Veronica Lee, Sunday Telegraph
Excellent comedy from a performer with a great future
Sunday Times ****
A delight…A great Fringe debut
The Independent ****
Effortless and very clever
The Mirror ****
Fabulous comedy…It’s clear she has a long and very successful career ahead of her.
The Bridget Jones of comedy. She’s rude, she’s risqué. A must-see.
Sunday Express *****
Funny yet uplifting.
A sharp wit.
The List
The hour flew by… very funny
The Age, Melbourne ****
On the Secret Policeman’s Ball for Amnesty
Geordie Sarah Millican jumped into the big league with a dazzling set
Times
Sarah Millican was the epitome of cool on this night. She may have been largely unknown, but her tetchy and pragmatic observations
on sex and relationships will have won her plenty of new fans and she loaded the short set with an enviable number of rock solid
punchlines
Chortle
