A Cleveland native, Sarah Manning grew up entertaining friends and family with her comedic writing, artwork and class clownmanship. She moved to Chicago to make this passion into a livelihood. She is a bold, eclectic comedian who includes characters, music and impressions in her performances. As a Second City Music Program grad and sketch writer, she employs these skills in her current work. She writes both sketch and standup comedy and hosts the eponymous Sedgwick Stop open mic every Monday.
