Last night we saw the amazing Sarah Millican!
As with Ross Noble, it was part of the Hull Comedy Festival and was a new venue for us, iScream just next to Hull Truck. It's part of the Albemarle Music Centre and is a great venue with a really lovely intimate feel which adds greatly to the performance. Not that Sarah Millican needs any assistance. She has a wonderful rapport with the audience and interacts easily - the audience also seem very much at ease with this too. Many acts can put an audience on edge with the fear of what they may ask them directly!
Much of her humour comes from her own life which is perhaps a reflection of her taking up stand up much later than many acts currently on the circuit. And it's delivered with a real warmth - you almost feel like you're sitting down with a mad friend who's explaining how her week's been.
I first heard her on Radio 4's 28 Acts in 28 Minutes and have been wanting to see her live ever since! If you get a chance to see her live, you're in for wonderful experience!
