Dr. Sarah Boston Comedy
Sarah Boston has had a circuitous route to the glamorous world of comedy performance and writing. She is a veterinary cancer surgeon and cancer survivor. (Ironic, right?) Her bestselling memoir, LUCKY DOG: HOW BEING A VETERINARIAN SAVED MY LIFE, was published by The House of Anansi in 2014. LUCKY DOG will make you laugh and ugly cry, sometimes at the same time, most of the time out loud. Sarah’s book got her on the path of comedy writing and eventually stand up comedy. Sarah has taken comedy writing and stand up classes at Second City, Absolute Comedy and the American Comedy Institute.
She made the Top 10 in CBC Comedy’s 2019 Next Up amateur comedy competition. She is the founder of a satirical veterinary online newspaper called The Cageliner. It’s like The Onion, but for veterinary peeps, but you can read it too if you want. She is 2023 graduate of the Humber College Comedy Performance and Writing Program. She is the 2023 recipient of the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund Award, which recognizes and supports promising comedic performers in the early stages of their careers, as well as the Award for Academic Excellence from Humber College. She is a regular on YukYuks Rising Stars in Toronto and has performed in at the Hillside Folk Festival and Guelph Comedy Festival. Sarah is thrilled to be represented by Oldfield Management. To bring together her love for comedy and medicine, Sarah has started a podcast called Comedicine, where is talks to other healthcare professionals (human and animal) who are also comedians.
