Wellington comedian Sarah
Harpur’s dedication to her craft was recognized last Thursday night in Auckland
at the AMP Scholarship Awards Ceremony, where she was announced as one of the
recipients of the prestigious “Do Your Thing” Scholarship Award for 2011.
The AMP Scholarship Programme
aims to support talented Kiwis by encouraging and assisting them to achieve
their goals and ‘do their thing’ – whatever that thing may be. Sarah’s
thing, in her own words, is writing and performing her ‘award winning
'brilliantly bizarre' comedy across the globe’.
Sarah is delighted, and says that
this will go a long way to further her comedy career. She will be proudly
representing New Zealand on the world stage in 2012 when she heads to Adelaide
Fringe Festival in Australia and Edinburgh Fringe in Scotland.
