S1E6:
Sarah Johnson  

Originally not aired on ??/??/????

Episode 6 of the smash-hit podcast “Comedians In Edinburgh Getting Chai Lattes” and we have Sarah Johnson. Sarah is like a mother to me, and by that I mean I don’t like to be seen with her in public.

Sarah was the first guest on the podcast who didn’t offer to buy the drinks. The tension this created throughout the conversation was palpable. Having failed to secure a sponsor for today’s episode, I was already a little bit anxious about how the show would stay afloat financially. Luckily, I was able to claim a small victory by spitting in her drink while she wasn’t looking.

Stingy since birth, Sarah disguises her financial meanness with emotional generosity. Someone who is always there for you - except when it comes to buying a hot drink - Sarah can put a positive spin on the direst of situations.

We spoke about mental health and how important it is to not get caught up in the competitive, cut-throat side of the Edinburgh Fringe. Sarah says she likes to imagine herself as being inside a protective forcefield that deflects any negativity coming her way.

“Sorry Sarah, it’s really bugging me. I’ve organised this whole thing, promoted it, paid for expensive recording equipment that I’ve switched off - surely the least you could do is buy the coffees?” 

“Your negativity isn’t penetrating my forcefield, Eric.”

Touché, Sarah. Touché.

Tune in tomorrow! X
