Sarah’s funny. But not as funny as she thinks she is.
— Ginger Burton, Sarah's Mom
 
 

Sarah Burton is a producer, writer, and a performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. She’s currently producing and corresponding (is that the word?) for ICYMI by HuffPost, a bi-weekly show about the intersection of politics and pop culture you can catch on your Apple TV. You can also watch her anytime on BuzzFeed’s Youtube channel — teaching her dog to play basketball and walking through New York in a giant bubble. Sarah has spent 100+ hours reading WebMD.

 

Sarah studied political science and journalism and Pennsylvania State University, where she later graduated with her master's in media studies. Her thesis was titled More Than Entertainment: The Role of Satirical News in Deliberation, Dissent, and Democracy. After her thesis defense, she realized she didn't want to keep studying comedy; she wanted to fucking do it. Sarah quickly rose through the ranks of UCB and hasn't looked back since.

 

 
But please, hire her.
