Sarah Ann Masse
Sarah Ann Masse is a hilarious woman on a mission; not only is she continuing the trend of breaking stereotypes and proving that females are funny, but she does so while drawing attention to the unhealthy social norms and boxes that our society places women in.
Making up half of the hit British-American comedy duo We Are Thomasse(with her British husband Nick Afka Thomas), Sarah is also the producer of their live sketch show at Second City Hollywood and all of their viral videos (most notably series like “Feminist Fairytales” and “Awkward Exes” and stand-alone sketches such as “Diagnosis: Misogyny” and “Christmas Crime”). She has produced, written, and acted with many well-known artists such as Tony nominee and TV star Steven Boyer, her fellow #MeToo movement Silence Breakers, and Grammy winner Jason Mraz, including creating the only scripted segment of his documentary “Have It All The Movie” which is available to stream on Amazon Prime. Sarah is also a professional singer and classically-trained actor who ran a successful theatre company in NYC.
As an actress, Sarah can be seen in an episode of the award winning, female driven web series “Reckless Juliets” which is available on Amazon Prime; She also wrote, produced and starred in the festival bound short film “Tristan & Kelly” co-starring Games of Thrones’ and Trading Paint’s Toby Sebastian; her British-American love triangle rom-com web series “S’N’M” which stars Downton Abbey’s Matt Barber recently premiered with new episodes arriving every other week; she is the voice of the popular audiobook series “The Chronicles of Kerrigan“; she is in pre-production for the new series “Pinch Me”; she just wrote her first feature, a female driven comedy feature called “Mother Trucker”; and she recently wrapped a short film focusing on the bravery of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford which was covered nationally by ABC News.
Sarah is an outspoken voice against the patriarchy and rape culture, a tireless supporter of survivors of sexual assault and harassment, and is one of the first women to come forward about her experience with Harvey Weinstein. Her mission is to educate the public regarding consent, coercion, and the nature of trauma while encouraging other artists, and her industry as a whole, to use their ability as story tellers to change the culture we live in to be more inclusive, representative, respectful, and dynamic for people of all ages, genders, races, nationalities, abilities, sexualities, and creeds. She is currently working with many organizations such as Time’s Up, Equal Rights Advocates, The Wrap Women, and Echo Training, and fellow activists to achieve these goals.
