Sara Barron announces first tour

30 dates for Enemies Closer stand-up show

Sara Barron has announced an autumn tour of her latest solo show, Enemies Closer.

Comprising 30 dates, it will be the first UK tour  for the US-born comic, who was nominated for best newcomer at the 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

In the show the Barron promises to explore ‘kindness, meanness, ex-boyfriends, current husbands, all four of her remaining friends, and two of her 12 enemies’.

She said: ‘As an American comic, I can't be like, "YeeHAW this tour is gonna be AWESOME!" without forcing my UK audience into a full-body cringe. 

‘But may I just say.... I think it *will* be awesome, but I'm saying it in an "I-live-in-Britain-and-buy-all-my-bras-from-M&S" kinda way. 

‘The UK comedy scene is one of my great beloveds - alongside crafty passive-aggression - so touring this show is truly the fulfilment of a dream. So come if you dig an artful rant. Stay at home if think you're "a positive person". I hope to see you there!’

The tour begins on October 21 at Bath’s Rondo Theatre and will include six nights at London’s Soho Theatre before concluding at the Brighton Komedia on November 14.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Thursday.
