Sarah Virago

About Sarah

Sarah is a writer, director, improviser and performer both on stage and screen. She considers storytelling an important mode of public service, and traded in her former work on Capitol Hill for filmmaking. She is a graduate of the Harold Ramis Film School at The Second City in Chicago, where she also studied improvisation in their Conservatory program. She has performed to sold out audiences in New York, DC, and Chicago, was awarded the Harold Ramis Screenwriting Fellowship, and her work has been recognized in film festivals around the country, most recently, the Women in Comedy Festival sponsored by HBO.

Born to a Muslim immigrant and a Christian woman from Ohio, Sarah brings her point of view and experiences as a “half-Arab, half-white girl” to her art, and believes that deep down, we’re all basically the same kind of jerk. It is this warm, fuzzy belief that she hopes will bring people together through comedy.

Some of her work:
