Following on from yet another successful Edinburgh Festival run in 2019 (and earning a place in the British Comedy Guide’s Best Reviewed Shows), Suzi Ruffell is taking her new show, Dance like Everyone’s Watching back on tour around the UK. The tour ends in Banbury on the 10th December.
“The impish stand-up is instinctively, exquisitely funny from the moment she sashays onto the stage”
**** EVENING STANDARD
Suzi has made a name for herself by turning tragedy and anxiety into big laughs since being nominated as best breakthrough act by Chortle in 2017. Now, all of a sudden, 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. There’s a mix of storytelling, observations, a dash of social politics and a lovely routine about a smear test. This show has everything.
The working-class comedian of her generation, Suzi Ruffell has had five sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival – racking up critical acclaim from reviewers and audiences alike, winning best club act by Chortle in 2019.
In 2018, Ruffell recorded and released her show Keeping It Classy for Live From The BBC, with a clip gaining over 32 million views on Facebook.
Suzi is best known for her appearances on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, The Jonathan Ross Show, Roast Battle, Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier, Hypothetical, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, The Comedy Bus, Stand Up Central, Harry Hill’s ClubNite and Suzi Ruffell Live From The Comedy Store.
A regular on BBC Radio 4 shows including The News Quiz and The Now Show, Ruffell also co-hosts the hit podcast Like Minded Friends with Tom Allen. 2020 saw Suzi hosting a brand-new radio show on BBC Radio 2 called Explicable Me, as well as launching her own podcast series OUT with Suzi Ruffell – which celebrates the lives of LGBT+ people and coming out, through interviews with star-studded guests.
Come and see what all the fuss is about!
“Her joy is infectious, her stories are captivating and her material is slicker and funnier than ever before”
