and on This American Life.
"Sara was friendly and professional from the off. On the day itself, Sara was on-time for rehearsals, wonderfully friendly, very low maintenance. She was wonderful… reading the room absolutely perfectly, using her skills to engage and humour our audience, quickly working out the range of comedy that would work best. Once warmed up, Sara then presented a lengthy, involved script with flawless delivery. We are already excited for the next time we can use her which will absolutely be this year!"
