I am a female stand up comic. I'm like that kid you would hang out with in the back of class and laugh hysterically.

Biography

Sarah Tollemache has been known to pull punches, but doesn't really tell it like it is. In fact, Sarah Tollemache lives in her own little world. As a child Sarah would listen to Eddie Murphy, George Carlin and Bill Cosby on cassette with her older brother. This is where Sarah got her inspiration to pursue comedy, not a normal little girl's dream. Sarah started honing in on her craft and eventually got voted Most Humorous in her eighth grade class. After high school, Sarah took a minor detour and thought that she wanted to pursue a career in music, but eventually she fell short on rent and had to sell her guitar and other child hood dreams. Then one day while hanging out in Austin saw an ad in the paper looking for comedians to try out for the Aspen Comedy Festival, so she decided to take a chance and that is the first time that she went up. She didn't do well, but she didn't do bad either and that is when she realized that there will always be someone worse than she was. So a few months later she discovered that the Houston Laff Stop had an open mic and was hooked then on out. After several years, she eventually rose in the ranks of Houston comedy and later won Houston's Funniest Person Contest in 2004. Now, Sarah Tollemache is fully determined to have a career in comedy. She now resides in New York City performing stand up, sketch and improv.
