Deliciously dark and brutally honest, comedian Sara Barron will bring her new show Enemies Closer to Aberdeen when she tours the UK for the first time.
Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominee and star of Live At The Apollo, Sara will embark on her first tour this October – stopping in The Lemon Tree on Friday October 8.
A powerhouse live act and fast-rising star, Sara’s previous shows have sold out to major critical and audience acclaim.
In Enemies Closer, Sara examines kindness, meanness, ex-boyfriends, current husbands, all four of her remaining friends and two of her 12 enemies.
Show about kindness and meanness
Sara said: “As an American comic, I can’t be like: ‘YeeHAW this tour is gonna be awesome!’ without forcing my UK audience into a full-body cringe.
“But may I just say… I think it will be awesome, but I’m saying it in an ‘I-live-in-Britain-and-buy-all-my-bras-from-M&S’ kinda way.
“The UK comedy scene is one of my great beloveds – alongside crafty passive-aggression – so touring this show is truly the fulfilment of a dream. So come if you dig an artful rant. Stay at home if think you’re a ‘positive person’. I hope to see you there!”
Where to get tickets for Sara Barron at The Lemon Tree
Doug Taylor, of local promoter Mint of Montrose, cannot wait for Sara to take to The Lemon Tree stage later this year.
He said: “We are super excited to be bringing Sara to Aberdeen on her very first UK tour.
“This blisteringly funny, sassy show was one of our highlights at last Edinburgh Fringe. We can’t wait to share it with Aberdeen’s comedy fans and get back supporting our venues and laughing in a room again.”
Since her 2018 debut at the Edinburgh Fringe, locals could have spotted on Would I Lie to You?, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Frankie Boyle’s New World Order as well as on Live At The Apollo.
On radio, her credits include appearances on The News Quiz, The Now Show, and Woman’s Hour. In addition, Sara also published two essay collections – People are Unappealing and The Harm in Asking.
