Susan returns to LCF for the 7th time with a brand new show.
Less fertile and more irritable, come and watch as she fights against middle age, ticks in her belly button and favourite bug bear; people who don’t do their jobs properly. Have you recently accidentally found out your Dad had a vasectomy over 40 years ago? No? Susan has. Has your local dry cleaners taken it upon themselves to attach a rather hideous leopard print collar to your £200 parka? No? Susan’s did. Did your Mum water a plant for 6 months before she realised it was plastic? Now do you see the basis of all this angst?
A cross between Frankie Boyle and Julie Walters, this Scots/Brummie lass will rocket you through an hour of top quality gags, angry bingo and her obsession with tarka dhal. Susan’s warmth and razor-sharp wit are winning over new audiences for her growing fan base.
This is Susan’s 7th time at the LCF. Several of her last shows played to critical acclaim.
Glottal Stops Here- a show about accents
Photo Booth- an obsession with passport photos
21st Century Fox- a show about the modern phenomenon of internet hating, erm dating
A veteran of the comedy circuit, Susan won the first ever Jongleurs new act competition and is now headlining gigs for them. She works regularly for every comedy promoter in the UK and is fresh from a three-week tour of South East Asia. Susan was one of the writers on Touch Me I’m Karen Taylor (Avalon/BBC3) and has toured the UK with Puppetry Of The Penis. She is a regular contributor to an array of Radio 4 comedy: The Now Show, News Quiz, Newsjack and The Show What You Wrote. She is the only woman to MC decompression gigs for the British Army.
Susan not only runs her own comedy night in Walthamstowinnit?, she also organises the UK’s Comedians’ Annual Christmas Party every year.
