Sarah Bennetto

A thoroughly engaging and charming storyteller

In this heart-warming little show, Aussie Bennetto tells the story of how, as an impoverished stand-up and one-time satellite TV presenter, she found herself invited to Clarence House to have tea with Prince Charles.

I lost the will to live listening to this 'comic'. The only show I paid for at the festival and the worst. The longest hour of my life, thought it was never going to end.

Mad about Comedy?
Want to enjoy the fringe?
Want to be engaged by a stand up Comic?
Want to listen to a great story?
Want a good belly laugh?
Want to spend your hard earned crust on an hour of fun?
Want to spend what little time you have at the fringe at a good comedy/ story telling show?
Curiosity got the better of you?
Sorry Sarah I am sure you are a super person in real life but you are no stand up comic..................

Sarah I am sure your visit to the Palace was awesome and funny -for you (we all have similar stories that are much funnier) but to pay for an hour to listen to every detail of this 'unfunny' story is mind numbingly are not a natural comic - read your audience or didn't you n
notice they were asleep. A tip that may help you - go and sit in the audience in the comedy clubs in Liverpool and find out what really funny story tellers do to engage their audience!
