Sally Firth AKA Sian Doughty (Comedian)

September 27, 2017

Sian Doughty has been performing stand up since October 2013.

In 2014 she created the character Sally Firth, the mother of a young male stand up comedian who does her version of his act, using his notebook.  

Reviews include:  “Beautifully written jokes,” (Maureen Younger, MY Comedy), “Looking wonderfully out of place was (spoiler alert: eventual winner!) Sally Firth. Imagine your friend’s slightly posh mum coming onto stage and being both adorable and hilarious and you'll understand why the audience fell in love with Sally. Sally's timing, expressions and delivery were so natural and her persona so likeable that the crowd were chanting her name at the end of her routine. Fantastic.” (Codie Louise Austin, North West End).  “Sally is a real hoot, switching from naive and unsure to more rude…she has the delivery spot on….has the charm to go solo.” (Views from the Gods)  “Did a fantastic set, drove the audience wild” (Jason Why, promoter), “Very funny” (Matthew Baylis, comic, MC and promoter) “Lit up the stage” (Alastair Sadler, comic, MC and promoter), “Sally is eminently likeable and the juxtaposition between content and delivery is a joy to watch. I've yet to see the character of "Sally" fail to win over audiences and keep them on her side throughout the journey that is her set. In short, smart, clever but most importantly funny."  (Ray Davis, comic, MC and promoter) “The innocent-looking but sexually explicit Sian Doughty” (Johnny Glasgow, MC and comic) “Hilarious” (Ariane Sherine, writer and comedy performer) “A class act, on and off the stage” (Steve McCann, promoter and performer).

In 2015 Sian was a semi-finalist in the Golden Jester Competition. In 2016 she beat King Gong at the Comedy Store, Manchester, won Beat The Frog at the Frog and Bucket, Manchester, won “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” in Leicester and won the Comedy Carousel at Birmingham Glee Club.

“Sally Firth” has been named as One To Watch by the judges of Funny Women 2016, was shortlisted for Silver Stand Up of the Year 2017 and was a semi-finalist in Welsh Unsigned Act of the Year 2017. She has beaten the blackout at Up the Creek in London three times, in 2015, 2016 and 2017 and won King Gong at the London Comedy Store in June 2017.

 She has also taken part in the 2014, 2016 and 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, the 2015 and 2017 Brighton Fringe, the 2017 Hastings Comedy Festival and the 2017 Camden Fringe. She has done a number of gigs for Joke Club and Mirth Control.
