The instant she steps on stage you know you’re in the presence of someone new and special - FIVE STARS - The Mirror

Sarah began performing comedy in 2010, quickly making her mark by becoming a Funny Women finalist the following year. In 2013 she won the Up The Creek ‘One To Watch’ award and was also a finalist in the Leicester Square Theatre New Act Competition.

Sarah now performs at some of the best comedy venues in the UK including The Stand, Banana Cabaret, The Frog & Bucket and Camden Comedy Club. 

Armed with bags of attitude, she’s a refreshing working-class comedy voice…reminiscent of a young Kathy Burke - FOUR STARS - The Herald

In 2014 she was named as ‘One to Watch’ by Time Out and in 2015 she took her critically-acclaimed debut hour show Elephant to the Edinburgh Fringe. A confessional exploration of escape and ambition, Elephantplayed to packed houses and received great reviews across the board.  Sarah was widely heralded as an exciting new comedic voice, a status cemented by her Malcolm Hardee Award nomination for ‘Act Most Likely To Earn A Million Quid’. She also appeared on E4’s Virtually Famous as a guest on Seann Walsh’s team.  Elephant subsequently toured to the prestigious Soho Theatre for a run of shows in 2016, again to acclaim, and then on to the Perth and Sydney Comedy Festivals in Australia.

A powerhouse. She’s an utter natural on stage… radiates confidence - FOUR STARS - Chortle

In 2016 Sarah was a guest on @elevenish (ITV2) and she returned to the Fringe with her eagerly-awaited follow-up, 24, which she once again took on to Australia for a second run of shows in the Sydney and Perth comedy festivals in 2017.   Sarah will return to Edinburgh in 2017 with a new show, and continues to take the live circuit by storm. 

Fiercely impressive and quite stunning - FOUR STARS - Scotsman

Magnificent performance. An absolute natural, Callaghan is definitely one to catch - Fest 

Callaghan oozes confidence. This supremely talented comic is ready for the next step. - FOUR STARS - Broadway Baby
