The Lowdown with Sara Pascoe

Posted 5th March 2019

We catch up with Sara Pascoe ahead of her two shows at The London Palladium in March.

What does it mean for you to be bringing your show to The London Palladium?

Sara Pascoe: It’s a very, very exciting prospect! I’ve done a few gigs and TV recordings there – and it’s an electric and special room; it feels like being part of history knowing all of the shows and performers that have graced that same stage. It’s an incredible venue to watch shows as well so when I was thinking about where to film my show, The London Palladium was my first choice. I’m so looking forward to it.

How has the show evolved since you first performed LadsLadsLads at the Edinburgh Fringe? 

SP: It’s been written continuously over the last 18 months as I endeavored to be better ‘by myself’. Not in a relationship, but going to other people’s weddings, going on holidays alone and seeking adventures that weren’t about looking for boys! It’s a celebration of singleness and how it can be a time of selfishness and discovery.

And have you evolved as well?

SP: I have no filter anymore! My comedy has always been confessional and occasionally ‘too much information’ but I’m taking it to new levels with this show. We’re all intimate friends by the end of the show.

Sum up your show three words that aren’t ‘lads’.

SP: Jokes, about, incest.

But jokes aside, what else does 2019 hold for you? 

SP: I’ve got some really exciting, big things happening: writing a TV project and releasing my new book SexPowerMoney. But performing at and filming my show at The London Palladium has got to be the highlight, I can’t wait. Hope to see you there!
