Having won the Comics' Choice Award at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, multi award-winning comedian Sarah Kendall is back with a hilarious new hour of storytelling. In this hour-long narrative, Sarah takes audiences back to a day in October 1990, when her best friend died for exactly 11 seconds. It’s a story about the remarkable effect those eleven seconds had on Sarah and her schoolmates. ‘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).
