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

Sarah Burton is a writer and performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade. You can 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.
— Ginger Burton, after some thought
