    Sarah Millican

    I actually saw Sarah live before she made it, and whilst not a fan of her comedy, she has gone up several notches in my opinion, its time someone stood up to the bullying vacuous media press and showed them up for the no-marks they are Comedian's Response to Criticism of Her Red Carpet Look...
