Following her month-long stint at the Edinburgh Fringe in August, the irrepressible Suzi Ruffell is taking her new show – DANCE LIKE EVERYONE’S WATCHING – on tour around the UK.
The tour is all about Suzi being happy for a change! But before you go for the off button, fear not: there will still be a heady dose of anxiety and misery – all oozed out via a mix of storytelling, observations, a dash of social politics and a lovely routine about a smear test. This show has everything, it really does.
Suzi 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.
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.
Suzi’s star is certainly on the rise, with her being recently named as the Chortle Best Club Act 2019 – to add to a nomination for Best Breakthrough Act at The Chortle Awards in 2017. It has been a busy few years for her, with three sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival resulting in her recording her show Keeping It Classy for Live from The BBC (which was released last summer) and a clip racking up over 16 million views on Facebook. Her shows receive critical acclaim and have nabbed her the working-class comedy crown of her generation.
2018 saw Suzi tour Australia, as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow. Earlier this year she was back on the road, filming Comedy Central’s new show Comedy Bus while also touring her own show Nocturnal to sell-out audiences. On top of all this, she is currently developing her own sitcom and a fact-based ents show.
Come and see what all the fuss is about!
