Sarah Breese bloody loves Christmas. She also bloody loves Cardiff comedy. As well as regularly co-hosting at Comedy Carousel at Cardiff’s Glee Club, she runs Odd Night Out which produces and promotes nights across South Wales. Sarah also recently performed stand-up for Made in Cardiff TV for Comedy Sheep and joked about how archeologists from the future would see her “as an 11-year-old boy from Primark”. It’s very funny.
As the above suggests, she is a very jolly lady. Therefore it seemed only right to grant her a festive message on Cardiff Comedy Hub this festive season:
“I bloody LOVE Christmas!
It’s not necessarily the presents. Because if you’re a comedian, surviving December is usually reward enough. But it’s been a hell of a year.
We’ve all seen gigs go well, gigs go badly. Unplayable rooms. Badly timed buffets. The dreaded raffle. Jokes going wrong, and brilliant comics turning it around. Jokes going right, and brilliant comics ignored anyway.
Car shares. Controversies. Cancellations. Competitions (because apparently we weren’t shitting it enough before gigs already). Solo shows with local acts smashing it on a whole new level, and familiar faces getting some (much deserved) national recognition.
Promoters running gigs for no money, no thanks, and sometimes, no audiences, but putting in the hours anyway because they’re legends.
And those lovely stupid bastards who come out in all weathers just to watch us tell jokes, whether we’ve finished writing them or not.
So, thanks, 2016. Cardiff comedy, you did great.
The rest of the world, on the other hand…
Merry Christmas you comedy fucks. xx”
If regular TV just isn’t doing it for you this festive season, you can catch up on Comedy Sheep’s stand-up here. It features Sarah as well as a handful of other brilliant Cardiff comics.
Merry Christmas to all you laughter-loving Cardiffians from Cardiff Comedy Hub! Have an alcohol-induced day of joy!
