In 2004, Kendall became the first comedienne to be nominated for the Perrier Award in almost a decade. She played a major role in shattering the glass ceiling for women comics – and in her first full show in five years Sarah’s again pushing the boundaries with her most political show to date.
Inspired by the birth of her daughter, Kendall questions the kind of society in which we’re raising girls: a society where educated middle-class women are pole dancing for fitness, fairytales teaches young girls to value beauty above brains, and if you watched too much MTV, you’d think lesbians sole purpose is to dance with each other on yachts and get it on whilst rap artists pour champagne on their heads.
Political but not polemical, hilarious but not haranguing, Get Up, Stand-Up is intelligent, considered comedy delivered by one of the most acclaimed stand-ups in the industry.
