This week on Dave’s One Night Stand Sarah Millican performs brand new and exclusive stand-up comedy in her hometown of Newcastle, with special guests Jarred Christmas and Alun Cochrane.%bang&
Sarah Millican claims “My sister tells people that we’re all funny in our family, but I’m the only one who gets paid for it” and it all started in Newcastle. There she performed in the back end of a scary pub in Newcastle. “All the women were just sat with their arms folded thinking, ‘Come on then, make me laugh!’ It went really well and I guess that’s what started me off. My ex-husband might not like me, but look at all the people who do. It’s just therapy!”
My sister tells people that we’re all funny in our family, but I’m the only one who gets paid for it.
“I did five minutes in a batwing top and for two-and-a-half minutes they stared and for two-and-a-half minutes they laughed. Then a man told me off for a coffin joke. I loved it.”
Millican’s debut Edinburgh Fringe show in 2008 saw her become only the second woman in more than 17 years to win the coveted if.comedy Best Newcomer Award for her bittersweet show, Sarah Millican’s Not Nice. The show charted the failure of her seven-year marriage and how she had to move back in with her parents after she divorced.
