Meet Sarah Callaghan – Ed Fringe 2015


I’m Sarah – my show is called Elephant and it’s a show about how the worlds we create for ourselves are small, how we get comfortable and are scared for change, or we just unconsciously give up because change is often so hard to achieve. Plus very good jokes obviously! Come see me, I need the cash, I’m still living at home in the room I grew up in and like many of us, I’m desperately trying to break free!


What is the first thing people notice about you?

The endless pools of light in my eyes.  Ha ha, the first thing people notice when they meet me is I’m already there, before them, I’m always early. Sometimes I’m an hour early for a meeting, ridiculous. 23 years old and I’ve never been late once. And then, because you’re always late, the second thing people notice about me is I’m screwing at them for being late. 5 minutes late?!  Really, well why have I been waiting here for an hour and 5 minutes? Idiot. I’m a nice person though after a few hours, endless pools of light etc!


6 things you can’t live without during the Fringe?

Eggs, toast, bacon, benedict sauce, salt and pepper. Is it called benedict sauce? Probably not, but you know what I’m talking about. The bacon has to be crispy as well, don’t take the piss.


Who are your Edinburgh Fringe Crushes this year?

Fringe crushes? I’m not 10. And seeing how the majority of comedians are completely insane its pretty hard to pick one!


Your darkest Fringe secret?

Some people moan about where they are living, oh it’s tiny, oh it’s so far away, oh it’s got a Glasgow postcode…  Whatever, I have stayed in hostels during the Fringe which is literally like creeping into the bedroom of a couple of different OAP’s that you don’t know every night and going to sleep in between them. Awful. But worst than that, my darkest day, falling asleep on a car. Not in a car, on a car. I was very, very tired. And by tired I mean pissed. Bring on 2015’s horrors, get a ticket and don’t be late!


Sarah Callaghan’s debut hour ‘Elephant’ will be at the Pleasance Courtyard Bunker One from 5th – 30th August for tickets go to
