Yorkshire comedian Sapphire McIntosh will be performing in the 'Best in Class' showcase at the Counting House at the Edinburgh Festival from tonight. 'Best in Class' is a crowd-funded, profit-sharing show that champions working-class comedians from across the UK, giving them access to the Fringe. The show was founded by Sian Davies, who was fed up of class, money and social status being used as a barrier to performing. Previous acts have included BBC Comedy Award finalists and weekend comedy headliners.
Born and raised in Leeds, Sapphire is a football playing, vox-popping, observational, high energy comedian, actor and writer. She's been curating her own style of comedy for the past decade and mixes comedy with a slice of realism into everything that she does, using comedy as a way of talking to people about challenging social issues.
'Best In Class' will run every night from 4th-28th August at 8.45pm at the Counting House. Tickets available now.
Sapphire McIntosh is available for voiceovers from Anthea Represents. Click her image for her profile page and voiceover showreel.
