Sarah Bridgeman

” A good performer, she simply soared” South Wales Evening Post

“It’s the warmth of her personality that endears her to the crowd and gets them in a fun sort of mood” Paul James founder and MC of The Clowns Pocket Comedy Club, Neath

Sarah Bridgeman is a home grown South Wales talent, a like-able next door neighbour figure, with a bit of bite. She talks about her lodger Troy, her failure to get dates and her frustraion over her inability to lose weight. She uses observational stories with whimsy perked up with her own special ukelele playing skills.

Sarah creates a warm, friendly atmosphere, has solid and dependable one liners along with longer stories that are utterly relateable,

‘I laughed from the minute you got on stage to the minute you left, really funny’ – Minehead audience member.

Sarah has been performing comedy all over the UK since 2009.She has performed at the Glee Club and regularly gigs for Mirth Control, one of the UK’s biggest booker of comedy acts. She has done well in various competitions and is a regular on Radio Wales as a funny news commentator .

Described as “A walk through the subconscious of lunacy”, Costas’ carefully thought out material, and understated delivery draws in the whole audience.
‘Costas’ layered material and understated delivery hides a wicked sting in the tail. Clever and quirky’ Lemon Rocket Comedy

Her first gig was at the Glee Club. I think we are her third. But we’re already predicting big things for this newcomer. Be in at the start of something big.

Dylan Jones MC

Dylan Jones hails from Swansea. He has appeared on several tv shows as a comedian, and hundreds as an actor. Although old enough to remember Bacardi Breezers, these days he prefers to stick to Febreze and cardis.
