Sarah Millican returns to Whitley Bay, 17th November 2015

Returning to her homeland, we are delighted to announce local lass, and critically acclaimed comedian Sarah Millican will wow the PLAYHOUSE audience this November 17th.

In just 7 years Sarah Millican has gone from winning the Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to becoming one of the UK’s most successful and multi-award-winning comedians, who also holds the record as the highest selling female comedian in the DVD market. This autumn, Sarah will delight her fans as she heads out on the road again for her fourth stand-up tour, Outsider.

In the past when you put South Shields lass Sarah Millican outside, she asked things like: ‘Why? Where is the taxi? Is that poo? Can we go home?’ and said things like: ‘There’ll be wasps’ and ‘I’ve nothing to sit on.’

These days things have changed; Now Sarah has outside slippers. She can tell a chaffinch from a tit (hey), but she still can’t tell if it’s an owl sound or her husband’s asthma.


As well as her success at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Sarah was also voted the People’s Choice Queen of Comedy at the 2011 British Comedy Awards and has fronted three series of her critically acclaimed BBC2 series The Sarah Millican Television Programme, for which she received two BAFTA nominations. Sarah is also a popular guest on primetime shows such as The Graham Norton ShowQI8 Out of 10 CatsThe Jonathan Ross ShowLive at the Apollo and The Royal Variety Performance. Her new tour, Outsider, will run for 119 dates, starting this October and finishing in Sept 2016, with tickets going on sale this Friday (27th March). Sarah’s last tour, Home Bird, was seen by over 200,000 people.

Sarah is a natural storyteller who charms the audience through her skilfully delivered gag-packed anecdotes about life’s curiosities.

With a track record of three sell out tours and 700,000 combined tour DVD sales to date, the Outsider tour promises to be another critically acclaimed triumph.

Back on home turf, Sarah Millican is venturing outside… We suggest you bring a cardie!
