SIMON EVANS & SUZI RUFFELL £12 HERE
Simon Evans- Dressing for Dinner
Observing the little traditional conventions in life – one pink sock for Michaelmas day, keeping toenail clippings in a separate jar from fingernails, cream first, then jam, then bacon – is what separates us from the animals. It gives life shape, meaning, and odour. Whether any of this appears in the show is of course, at this point, moot. It may just be an ill-advised attempt to lose weight by eating only olive oil and balsamic vinegar. ‘Magnificently pessimistic’ **** (List). ‘Unfashionable… slightly mad’ **** (Chortle.co.uk) ‘Masterclass in socio-political comedy’ ***** (Scotsman).
Suzi Ruffell: Dance Like Everyone’s Watching
Suzi has made a name for herself turning tragedy and anxiety into big laughs. This year she is happy. This show answers the question: are all stand ups at their best when they are miserable? Fingers crossed no.
The last twelve months have been massive for Ruffell; a smash hit UK tour, heaps of television appearances including Live At The Apollo and she’s learnt how to make the perfect lemon cake. Come and see what all the fuss is about!
