Sarah Callaghan is an award-winning comedian and writer.
In 2014 she was named as ‘One To Watch’ by Time Out Magazine and in 2015 she took her critically-acclaimed debut hour show Elephant to the Edinburgh Fringe.
A confessional exploration of escape and ambition, Elephant received great reviews across the board and Sarah was widely heralded as an exciting new comedic voice, a status cemented by her Malcolm Hardee Award nomination for ‘Act Most Likely To Make A Million Quid’.
Holding the proceedings together is Kettering Art Centre’s own home-grown genial compere, Nick Wills.
