40 Winks with Sarah Breese

Comedian and self-confessed night-owl Sarah Breese is awake most nights and is wondering why. She's enlisted the help of sleep experts and won't rest until she gets some answers.

Comedian and self-confessed night-owl Sarah Breese is awake most nights and has started wondering why. She's never found it easy to get to sleep and despite spending most evenings on the road travelling from gig to gig, she's getting fed up of feeling worn out. So she's enlisted the help of some sleep experts and won't rest until she gets some answers.

She'll meet neuroscientist Dr. Dean Burnett to talk about brains and sleep-science while expert Alex Perkins tells Sarah about physiological factors and sleep apnoea. Confronting the issue through her stand up, Sarah discovers that she shares her insomnia with the likes of Mozart, Jimi Hendrix, and Mark Twain. Will staying awake all night actually turn her into a creative genius? Or does it just explain how she once went to a meeting wearing two non-matching shoes?
