'Powerful, poignant and achingly funny stuff' ***** (Herald). 'It's refreshing to see something so generous and outward-looking' ( 'The most hilarious visual images' **** (Scotsman).

The show was sold out. The venue was at capacity, and a celebrity comedian was turned away at the door through lack of room. Since being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer, Sarah has gone from strength to … Read More...

The Scotsman (4/5 stars) 113 days ago

At a time when most male comedians are doing their best to distance themselves from toxic masculinity, Sarah Keyworth continues to be seduced by the idea of being a big, strong, emotionally repressed boy. ...

The Skinny (4/5 stars) 113 days ago

Pacific marks the return of Sarah Keyworth after making big waves at last year’s festival with her debut hour. This year, she tackles similar topics with an ultimate focus on her sexuality, but also delves into her relationships, family, and gender stereotypes. This is a confessional, non-preachy type of show....

The Guardian (3/5 stars) 113 days ago

Sarah Keyworth’s 2018 fringe show – which secured her a best newcomer nomination – fretted at the signification of the words “boy” and “girl”. A big subject, and one she clearly hasn’t exhausted, given that its follow-up, Pacific, harps on the same string. But from a new angle: this one...

The Herald [paywall] (4/5 stars) 120 days ago

2018 was a big year for Herald Angel-winner and Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer nominee, Sarah Keyworth and 2019 is shaping up to be equally impressive. She's bagged herself a target-goal hairstyle, a new non-subterranean performance space and a gag-packed belter of a sophomore show. A quick audience poll to...

Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (4/5 stars) 124 days ago

The new haircut's a razor-sharp move. Sarah Keyworth opens the show by telling us how her recently re-styled quiff is bringing all the girls rather than the boys to the yard. The apparently light, fluffy intro...

The Times [paywall] (4/5 stars) 125 days ago

Getting a Best Newcomer nod at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards can be the sign of great things to come. It can also be a note of encouragement that never quite leads to greatness. Sarah Keyworth was nominated last year for a show, Dark Horse, that addressed being a lesbian who...

Broadway Baby (3/5 stars) 126 days ago

Keyworth has become something of an internet sensation in the last year, and her performance showcases a very confident and comfortable performer, owning her space and her audience. There are moments of audience interaction which are not in the least bit awkward, and we are regaled with tales of Keyworth’s...

To Do List (4.5/5 stars) 126 days ago

A supremely confident and carefree sophomore show from the 2018 Best Newcomer nominee.It’s the cliched measure of time well spent that it flies by, and this hour in the company of Sarah Keyworth certainly whizzes past on a wave of smart observation, candid confessional and easygoing charm.Confrontational, borderline-aggressive comedians often...

Fest (3/5 stars) 129 days ago

Of course it's taken a short-haired lesbian who dresses in a gender neutral fashion to provide one of the most interesting takes on masculinity you'll likely find at the Fringe. Make no mistake, though, this offering from Sarah Keyworth is far from a radical exercise in subversion. Online critics have...
