Champion of all dung beetles.

Tell us a little about yourself?

I’m a stand-up comic and radio girl, who collaborates on all sorts of fun things that take me to festivals and some wonderful and strange places. I have a weekly radio show in Dalston, called Sarah Bennetto’s Mix-Tape, where I make crazy playlists based on listener suggestions. The Worst Ever Wedding Songs and Songs for the Coming Zombie Apocalypse are two of my recent favourite shows.

You’re also a stand up comedian – do you still perform comic routines or has the Storytellers’ Club taken over? Or can you combine the two?

I go where I’m booked. It’s exhausting, but it’s the best job in the world. So I gig at comedy clubs throughout the week and weekend, then tour festivals with my storytelling and feature-length comedy shows. Every Thursday at midnight I present my little radio show on NTS Live, and then in summer, I pack my sunscreen, Vivienne Westwood wellies, and head off to broadcast live from the marvelous Glastonbury Music Festival. For an incredibly uncoordinated person, I’ve become quite the juggler…
