Comedy evening to raise funds for Manchester Mind

Following a sell-out run at Camden Fringe 2015, comedy duo Saban Kazim and Sarah Sheldon are joining forces again in March for a one-off hour-long show of stand-up and storytelling in Manchester…

This is a unique opportunity to see the two outside of London – Saban won the Comedy Store King Gong in 2014 and Sarah was a finalist at the Jewish Comedian of the Year 2014.

Sabah has been gigging regularly since 2010, performing at venues including The Comedy Store London, The Comedy Cafe and Backyard Comedy Club, becoming three time winner of The Comedy Cafe’s New Act night.

Sarah Sheldon is a London-based writer and journalist who has covered events and issues as varied as the presidential elections in Panama and the Lithuanian laxative market.  She has been going stand-up since 2012 and is co-founder of Shake The Tree, a monthly comedy night in North London.

Their debut show draws upon their distinctive life experiences…Saban’s Turkish-Cypriot Dad who still doesn’t know he does stand-up; Sarah’s Czech Grandmother who knows she does it but doesn’t know what it is; reckless life choices; trying to buy a piece of toast; hoovers; and how children’s books can ultimately ruin your life!

All proceeds from the comedy night will support Manchester Mind, an independent, self-financed mental health charity that delivers free local mental health services to young people, adults and families across the city.

Saban and Sarah Do Stand up takes place on Saturday 19 March at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation on Cambridge Street, Manchester.  Tickets £8 in advance from Eventbrite or £10 on the door.
