Originally from Nottingham, Sarah Keyworth is fast-becoming a regular on the London circuit and has recently supported Stewart Francis on tour. Her material is a mix of honest anecdotal storytelling about her Midlands upbringing, made surreal with the occasional addition of a silly observation. She delivers sharp lines with a cheeky smile and moments of sudden deadpan that leave the audience wanting more.

Sarah Keyworth is a member of Generation Y. The generation, born of the baby boomers, that was brought up to believe anything was possible as long as you knew what to google. In this hilarious 40 minute show Sarah explores what it is like to have grown up feeling like you can be whatever you want to be and do whatever you want to do, and then arriving into your mid-twenties and realising you’re no more special than anyone else.
