Top English comedian and writer Sara Pascoe.

ACCLAIMED English comedian and writer Sara Pascoe is to perform a stand-up show at Mareel this winter.

The multiple award-winning comic, who has starred on shows including Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week, QI and Taskmaster and as a regular guest on Frankie Boyle’s TV vehicle New World Orderwill visit Shetland for the first time with her brand-new stand-up show on Saturday 18 November.


Pascoe is currently enjoying a “year-long, one-woman stag do”: from spiritual retreats, city breaks and life-drawing classes to football matches, she has been “drunk and lonely everywhere”.

Pascoe said: “I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the beauty of Shetland and the joy of performing to the wonderful inhabitants – I can’t wait!”

The Mareel show will also feature a set from local comedian Marjolein Robertson, fresh from her latest stint at the free fringe in Edinburgh last month.

Neil Riddell of local promoters Ragged Wood said Pascoe was one of the smartest comedians to have emerged on the UK scene in recent years. Tickets are already shifting fast, so early purchase is advised to avoid disappointment.
