Having won the Comic's Choice Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, multi award-winning comedian Sarah Kendall is back with a new hour of storytelling. In this hour-long narrative, Sarah's story will take audiences back to a pool party she went to in 1989 that was so disastrous that the ramifications are still being felt today. It was a pretty bad pool party. 'Kendall is a thoroughly captivating teller of an expertly constructed story' **** (Chortle.co.uk). 'Kendall's intensity keeps the audience gripped all the way' **** (Fest). 'Fiercely funny' (Observer).

Full press release
In 1989, one of Sarah Kendall's best friends died for exactly eleven seconds. A Day In October is a story about the insights the boy developed into life and death, and the remarkable effect those eleven seconds had on Sarah and her schoolmates.
Perrier Award-nominated and master raconteur, Sarah Kendall, has been winning praise for her new storytelling style. Eschewing traditional stand-up's piecemeal anecdotes in favour of an hour-long narrative Sarah explores life, death, and 20 foot tall fibreglass chickens.
Another rollercoaster narrative with a fierce twist, Sarah paints vivid portraits and weaves intricate tales with the ease. But most importantly, she raises mighty laughs along the way.
Touchdown, Sarah's last show, was winner of the 2014 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Comics' Choice Award, seeing her join ranks with previous winners Stewart Lee, Tony Law and Sam Simmons. Expect more great things from the master storyteller this Fringe...
