Sara Barron: Work In Progress: Leicester Comedy Festival 2023 – Firebug, Leicester, 2023
Sara Barron is an American comedian based in London and was the first act on the bill at Always Be Comedy that I saw in 2017. Baron was darkly humorous in her delivery with sharp and clever routines and set pieces. She conveyed some cringe-worthy stories to the attentive audience which were brilliantly told and very funny.
Barron appeared at Always Be Comedy again November 2018. On stage she reminded me of the great Joan Rivers – fearless, outrageous, and brassy covering a wide range of subjects from living in Britain to relationships and sex. She was boisterous and generated big laughs from an unsuspecting audience.
I saw Barron once again play Always Be Comedy in July and September 2019. In both performances, her sharp observations were extremely quick-witted, and she had total confidence to talk about any subject on stage. She delivered a brilliantly constructed set that delighted the audience.
Barron performed a blistering set of material based on her experiences of lock down for Comedy at The Covid Arms online that I watched in June 2020. Barron also brought her wonderful caustic wit and classy delivery when she appeared as a guest for Vix Leyton’s Comedy Roulette in July 2020.
The animated comedian returned to a socially distanced Always Be Comedy in October 2020, again in July 2021 and also at Cutting Room Floor East the same month where she fearlessly tore into her routine about married life, children and living in the UK and her biting humour was hysterical and was wonderful to watch.
Barron appeared online for Always Be Comedy’s first new year show for 2022. Subjects included covered Coronavirus, her family, and her career. The delivery was brilliantly sharp, and she was hilarious with the audience.
It was a joy to see the great comedian perform a work-in-progress show for the Leicester Comedy Festival that I watched in February 2023. The show was full of her trademark acerbic wit, describing her family life and proved once again what a great comedian she is.
