Sarah Sherman Facts
- She grew up in Long Island, New York.
- Her nickname “Sarah Squirm” is inspired by a high school nickname.
- While at Northwestern University, she was unable to make it to the improv team and she eventually got inclined towards stand-up comedy.
- Sarah Sherman stayed in Chicago after graduating from Northwestern University and became friends with comedians such as Megan Stalter. Along with Luke Taylor, David Brown, Wyatt Fair, and Scott Egleston, Sarah Sherman also had a monthly show called Helltrap Nightmare.
- She opened for comedian Eric André on his Legalize Everything tour in 2019.
- Sarah Sherman auditioned for the NBC late-night live sketch comedy, political satire, and variety show Saturday Night Live and was later cast as a featured player for the show’s 47th edition, alongside fellow newcomers James Austin Johnson and Aristotle Athari.
- Before she was hired on Saturday Night Live, she struggled with finding work because the hiring managers were usually turned off by her gross-out videos.
- She has earned praise for her work on SNL and Luka Katic of Collider once wrote: “Sherman certainly isn’t the first unconventional comedian to be featured on SNL (i.e. Tim Robinson, Kyle Mooney, etc.). However, what makes her remarkable is her success in spite of that fact. Where actors like Robinson often felt they had to tone down their material for SNL, Sherman finds inventive alternative ways to channel her deranged sensibilities into the show.”
- Her sketch titled “Meatballs” from the Oscar Isaac/Charli XCX episode of the 47th installment of Saturday Night Live has been listed as one of the best of the season by Jesse Hassenger of Vulture who wrote: “In a crowded season, it was especially refreshing to come upon a sketch that feels like such a clear expression of its star’s sensibilities.”
