THIS IS THE WORST: A solo sketch comedy show

From chores to body ailments… Sarah uses physical comedy, a variety of characters, and all around goofiness to illustrate some of life’s frustrations that are THE WORST.

“Sarah Barnhardt is one funny lady. She is also hilariously inept when it comes to romance.”
–Patti Vasquez, WGN Radio (Pretty Late with Patti Vasquez)

“Really awesome, and weird, and creative, and funny, and ballsy.”
–Timmy Whitzell, The WIP Theater

“Like a live-action, one-person Looney Tunes.”
–Audience member
