Edinburgh Fringe 2018: Comedy Special
Award-winning comedian Sarah Callaghan presents a powerhouse mash-up of comedy and poetry about gangs, fitting right in and feeling left out. Everyone seems to have a gang – her peers, politicians, terrorists. Where’s hers?
I have known Sarah for sometime – she is one of the people I am the most excited to see when i am in Edinburgh. Sarah is truly amazing on stage and definitely one to watch this Edinburgh Fringe.
“The instant she steps on stage you know you’re in the presence of someone new and special” ★★★★★The Mirror
The Ballad of Sarah Callaghan
Sarah Callaghan brings her fifth solo show to the Edinburgh Fringe, this time mixing stand-up with poetry. Sarah Callaghan says ‘I’ve been doing comedy for 8 years now and wanted to do something a bit different this year. I’ve been writing poetry since I was a kid, and have been wanting to combine the two art forms in an Edinburgh show for a few years. It’s my most personal show to date. I’ve only just started on the poetry scene, but this year I’ve been playing at various festivals and recently performed at the Roundhouse. I’m releasing my first book of poetry to go alongside the show. This will be available at the show to buy.’
Armed with bags of attitude, she’s a refreshing working-class comedy voice…reminiscent of a young Kathy Burke ★★★★ The Herald
The show is directed by award-winning comedian and writer Nathan Cassidy.

People say write about what you know. So I did. I founded Broke Girl in the City – a smart girl’s guide to leading a fabulous lifestyle on a budget! A career spanning entertainment, bars & nightclubs (and frequenting them), film, music and TV, there isn’t much I don’t know about how to have fun in the city when completely broke.
