Multi award-winning comedian Sara Pascoe is coming to Middlesbrough Town Hall as part of her brand new UK and Ireland live tour.
The 50-date Success Story tour kicks off on November 10, reaching the Town Hall on Saturday, January 28 – and tickets are on sale now.
Promoted by Show And Tell in association with Dawn Sedgwick Management, Success Story sees Sara embarking on the biggest and best tour of her life and playing in parts of the UK and Ireland that she hasn’t performed at before.
Sara decided she wanted to be famous at 14 years old. Since then, she has auditioned for Barrymore, scared Pete Burns and ruined Hugh Grant’s birthday - but look at her now… (please look, she needs you to look. And clap. And laugh. And then clap again).
Sara’s last countrywide live tour, LadsLadsLads sold every single Edinburgh Fringe ticket before the festival had started and went on to not only critical acclaim but also culminated in two shows at the London Palladium which was also filmed for the BBC2 stand-up special, Sara Pascoe: LadsLadsLads.
Since then things have most certainly changed for Sara - from contemplating the positive aspects of self-imposed celibacy in LadsLadsLads, Success Story finds Sara a few years later happily married with a beautiful baby son.
The show will see Sara examine what it is to be successful, how we define it and how it feels when what we want eludes us. Expect jokes about status and celebrities - plus Sara’s new fancy lifestyle versus infertility, her multiple therapists and career failures.
