2018 Awards Host

/ Sara Pascoe - Edinburgh Comedy Award nominated comedian, writer and actor


In her routines, Sara takes a wry, almost deadpan look at the more inexplicable aspects of life, love and people. She questions why people wear T-shirts bearing the likenesses of more attractive people, and whether debt can be solved by installing card payment machines that are more like disapproving parents.

Sara won the 2014 Chortle Breakthrough Award. She has appeared on Live at the Apollo and Stand Up for the Week. She’s also been a panellist on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, QI, Have I Got News For You, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and Mock the Week, and Radio 4’s The News Quiz. As an actor she played Coco Lomax, Senior Trend Analyst at Siobhan Sharpe’s Perfect Curve agency in the hit Olympic sit-com Twenty Twelve, and its sequel W1A. She has also appeared in The Thick of It, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, Campus, and Being Human.

Sara also starred in and co-wrote the Channel 4 sketch show Girl Friday, has written for the Guardian and Independent, and penned a book, Animal, published in 2017.
