Dance Like Everyone's Watching: Suzi Ruffell
The last twelve months have been massive for Suzi Ruffell, with a smash-hit, sell-out UK tour, heaps of television appearances (including Live at the Apollo and Mock The Week), and she’s even learnt how to make the perfect lemon cake. She is also a regular on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz and The Now Show, and co-hosts the hit podcast Like Minded Friends with chum and fellow stand-up Tom Allen. Other TV credits include Roast Battle, Ultimate Worrier, Hypothetical, Stand Up Central and Suzi Ruffell Live From The Comedy Store.
Ruffell has made a name for herself by turning tragedy and anxiety into big laughs. This year she is actually happy. This show answers the question: are all stand-ups at their best when they are miserable? Fingers crossed no!
Of course, the world is still completely f**ked – so don’t worry, it won’t be too joyous. A mix of storytelling, observations, a dash of social politics and a lovely routine about a smear test. This show has everything.
Suzi’s innovative style captivates audiences with her engrossing tales of social ineptitude. Lauded as ‘a real stand up gem’ by The Guardian, this young independent woman celebrates her working class roots with a sideways look at the world.
Regarded as one of best up and coming acts on the circuit Suzi is in constant demand at clubs and theatres across Britain. Fast establishing herself on the live circuit supporting Alan Carr, Josh Widdicombe, Kevin Bridges and Romesh Ranganathan all over the country. 2017 saw her take her solo show ‘Common’ on a sell out tour around the UK.
As seen on Channel 4, E4, BBC3, Comedy Central, Dave and heard on BBC Radio4.
