Sarah Millican career
After leaving the civil service, Millican entered the comedy scene, debuting with Sarah Millican’s Not Nice at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Her divorce was the catalyst for this. In 2008, she was named Best Newcomer at the I.F. comedy Awards.
In the spring of 2009, she started previewing her second Edinburgh show, and her material on the fight of the sexes received rave reviews. Her ‘blue’ material drew a lot of praise from reviewers.
Millican’s third performance, Chatterbox, was hosted by the Stand Comedy Club and played at the 2010 Fringe Festival. The show was shortlisted for the main Edinburgh Comedy Award, but Russell Kane won it instead. Sarah has performed as a panelist on 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, You Have Been Watching, Have I Got News for You, QI, Would I Lie to You?, and Never Mind the Buzzcocks since her first appearance in the spotlight, as well as a performer at The Secret Policeman’s Ball 2008 and on 4 Stands Up since her first presentation in the spotlight.
She’s also featured on Channel 4’s crossover game show 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown a few times as a participant. Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, which aired in Manchester in June 2009, featured her. Sarah was a guest on six episodes of Frank Skinner’s Opinionated after appearing on the third edition of David Mitchell’s panel show The Bubble in March 2010. Along with fellow comics Rhod Gilbert, Jon Richardson, Isy Suttie, and Gavin Webster, she contributed vocals to the BBC’s natural history video for Walk on the Wild Side.
She hosted Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and was featured on Live at the Apollo on 11 December 2009. She also headlined the fourth edition of Dave’s One Night Stand, which she recorded at the Empire Theatre in Sunderland on 15 August 2010.
Sarah Millican’s Support Group, which premiered on BBC Radio 4 on February 18, 2010, was her first foray into radio. The idea is that studio audience members are encouraged to share their concerns with her agony aunt character in order for her to offer counsel “in the same way that the busybody down the street who knows everything and gives you advice whether you want it or not does.” Some of the issues are written, with guest actors playing the roles, while others come from real individuals in the crowd, allowing Sarah to improvise. On BBC Radio 4 Extra, the show’s second series premiered on 2 May 2011.
She was also a regular co-host of BBC Radio 5 Live’s satirical news show 7 Day Sunday alongside comedians Chris Addison and Andy Zaltzman, as well as a different guest each week. In January 2010, the pilot episode was broadcast. She and Addison, however, exited the show on 27 February 2011. In December 2011, she co-starred with Steve Coogan, Simon Greenall, and Gavin Webster in three Viz “Comedy Blaps” for Channel 4. She joined the panel of ITV’s Marriage Ref and the daytime chat show Loose Women in 2011. In August, she did, however, leave the show.
She appeared on a number of additional panels and talk shows shortly after. Channel 4 published a live DVD of her Chatterbox tour in November of the same year.
