Award-winning comedian and writer Sarah Millican is set to perform at Derby Arena on Sunday 1 July 2018 as part of her latest UK stand-up tour. Priority tickets are available to Derby LIVE customers on Thursday 29 June at 10am.

Sarah Millican isn’t a control freak, she’s a control enthusiast. She even controls her own insults, see? Do you arrange the nights out? Are you in charge of passports on holiday? Then so are you!

Whether you’re sorting the tickets for this show or turning up when you’re told to, welcome. You’ll learn about Rescue Men, farting in hospital pants, what can happen at a bra fitting, the benefits of casserole, plus tips on how to talk to shop assistants and the correct way to eat a biscuit.

Frank, funny and unapologetically filthy.

Her fifth tour, Control Enthusiast, will mark ten years since Sarah established herself as one of the leading lights of the British Comedy scene by winning the Best Newcomer Award at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe. In the subsequent years, Sarah has gone on to host three series of her critically acclaimed BBC2 series The Sarah Millican Television Programme, for which she received two BAFTA nominations and has become a familiar face on primetime shows such as QI, Live at the Apollo and The Royal Variety Performance.

In October 2017 she will release her first book, How To Be Champion, which is part autobiography, part self-help, part confession, part celebration of being a common-or-garden woman. She has recently launched the Standard Issue podcast, a smart, funny magazine-style show made for women by women.
