Kiran Saggu And Sarah Roberts: Cake (Kiran Saggu And Sarah Roberts)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2022

After a fun audience intro involving actual cake, this is a fine and frequently filthy stand-up double bill. Kiran Saggu riffs on her Indian (by way of the USA and London – including a great Indiana joke) heritage and the blurring of lines between colonialism comedy and sex gags is a fresh twist. Self-confessed tragedy pervert Sarah Roberts skips lightly over what, for a half hour set, is a pretty remarkable range of dark ground. I mean, “let me tell you about the FIRST time I nearly killed a baby” is certainly one way into a nannying yarn… In their best moments, both Saggu and Roberts make it all look like a piece of… oh please yourself. Anyway, really promising stuff, well worth your time.

Just The Tonic at the Mash House, until 28 Aug.
