Sara Pascoe creates BBC Comedy Short

Some of Britain’s top comedy talent have created four new short films for the BBC. Sara Pascoe, Tim Key, Nick Helm and Spencer Jones have written and star in the shorts, which have been commissioned by BBC Two and will premiere on BBC iPlayer on Saturday 12th May.

In Sara Pascoe’s film, Sara Pascoe vs Monogamy, the award-winning comedian, writer and actor takes on history, heartache and her mother. The comedy short, produced by Stolen Picture and directed by the Blaine Brothers begins with the bold statement that Sara “doesn’t think human beings are meant to be monogamous” and descends into bad best man speeches, bad sex Victorians and sperm wars. Sara delves into why ‘screwing around’ isn’t a male prerogative and why jazz makes her skin crawl.

Sara says: “I feel so lucky to have been given an opportunity to use animation, actors and Robbie Williams impersonators to develop the kind of thing I talk about in my stand up shows. I’m really excited for people to see it.”
