Sarah Connor is a Madison, Wisconsin-based comedian and Massachusetts native whose comedy illustrates what happens when you try to paint "sexy" over a primer coat of "tomboy." Connor combines quick-witted New England sass with a background in improv and sketch comedy to create a unique comedic style and presence. Her strong, sarcastic humor, delivered with a voice of playful authority, makes mothers, daughters, and dates laugh, and fathers wonder about their daughters.
Sarah has opened for several national headliners, including Darryl Lenox, Eric Griffin, Kevin Bozeman, Jamie Lissow, Bret Ernst, and Mike Baldwin. She was featured at Boston’s Geek Week Comedy Festival, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, and was accepted to perform in the Limestone Comedy Festival. With material centering on the observational absurdities of single adult life, she speaks for women who are still burdened by a functioning appropriate conversation filter. She has been described by drunk audience members as both “a sexy Lewis Black” and a “dirty Vonnegut,” as well as “Really awesome!” by musician Susan Tedeschi, the best comedy judge of all time.
Originally from a part of Massachusetts that doesn’t have an accent, Sarah was a comedic improvisor and sketch comedian for over 10 years before beginning a career in stand-up comedy. The result is a unique combination of entertaining, animated, vocal and visual stand-up comedy. She has performed at colleges and universities, national festivals, and frat house dining rooms with UMass Amherst's renowned Mission:IMPROVable and Casual Sketch, the Chicago Playground Theater, and ImprovBoston.
She studied writing at Chicago’s Second City and is creator and director of the improvised crime drama CSI:Boston, Special Comedy Unit at ImprovBoston. She’s a contributing writer to Bridesmaiding.com, has over a quarter million hits on her song and music video parodies on YouTube, and is Madison’s undefeated limbo champion of 2012. She hosts the Argus Underground Comedy Showcase and open mic every Monday night in Madison, and can readily be spotted intimidating the life out of any man who tries to talk to her.
