"You MUST book Sarah immediately. I don't care what it's for, just do it right now. Don't wait. She has the best laugh in the business which is so great to have in the room when you rehearse. Her ideas are clear and so smart, she really knows what she's talking about, and most importantly she's so so so supportive, she will help you get your ideas out and be the best version of YOU and YOUR comedy. I want to work with her for the rest of my life."
