Independent Genius'

Radio Times Saly-Anne Hayward Sally-Anne is charming and popular, with a winning brand of auto biographical humour. She'll take you on a journey through her slightly eccentric world, including insights into the female psyche and her compulsion to send off spoof job applications. ' Small-time country posh life versus young lady breaking into the stand-up circuit. Fabulous!'


'It's easy to imagine Hayward at the 02 or guesting on QI.She is a crowd-pleaser and a straightforward observational comic, but so are most of Britain's favourite comedians today. Hayward is easily the equal of any of them'The Skinny' Innate effusive likeability with straightforward but effective writing... a primetime act''
