SF Sketchfest. It’s an alternative comedy festival. I’m on the Board and have been performing there for the last six years. It exposes me to all the new comedians, shows and groups coming up. I find it so inspiring.
Some of the new TV shows, like Broad City or Inside Amy Schumer.
I’d be a musician. 10,000 hours. Yikes!
Passionate, angry and curious. My parents called me Sarah Heartburn.
The Groundlings, Sketchfest, Westside Comedy Theatre, Tasty Words, Charlotte’s Shorts, Celebrity Autobiography. Some of these are shows I go and see and am completely inspired by. Others I perform in and always find new ways to stretch and explore.
Richard Pryor, Eve Arden and Skrillex.

3 Netflix series. Dawn of The Croods, Puss In Boots and Troll Hunter, which is a Guillermo Del Toro show. I’ll also be appearing in Charlotte’s Shorts at the Actor’s Company Let Live Theatre as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival this June.
I’ve written a show about auditions and I’m hoping to have it ready to perform in August.
