Dry, sardonic and yet strangely endearing, Sarah Kendall is a powder-keg of comedy and fury combined. Staking her claim as a strong, authorative female comic, she presents a truly enjoyable hour of stand-up comedy, one brimming with sass and observational quirks.
Kendall covers a lot throughout her show, from her experiences abroad to advertising industry antics, the comic even taking aim at children's tale The Ugly Duckling. Whatever the subject, Kendall is both an engrossing performer and utterly hilarious. It's apt that the show's titled Persona, the common punter bound to exit with a comprehensive cross-section of Kendall herself. She throws so many aspects of herself into the show, laying everything bare, with elements of strength and defiance - as well as shame and vulnerability - fused together to ensure a versatile and consistently entertaining experience.
Impassioned, charismatic and razor-sharp, Kendall's stand-up comedy is a joy to watch. Persona is a very strong showing from a local comic bound for greater things.
