ED FRINGE REVIEW Sarah Keyworth, Dark Horse

★ ★ ★ ★ ☆


A modern voice. A needed voice. A funny voice.


Perhaps more than other years, the toughest group of comedians performing at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe are the newcomers. Amongst them is Nottingham-born Sarah Keyworth, whose debut hour Dark Horse about gender expectations on women is the show the 2018 festival deserves and stands her out as one to watch.


Her debut hour does everything you'd expect it to do. It introduces us to Sarah as a comedian and gives us an insight into the type of character she is. She's the "L" in LGBTQ+ (just don't ask her what the other letters stand for), she's not the daughter of footballer Pavel Nedvěd and she decided to attend university as a straight woman... for a bit.
