FOLLOWING a total sell-out Fringe run before the Fringe had even started, swiftly followed by a sell-out two-week run at London’s Soho Theatre, Susan Calman will be visiting Bridgwater.

Heralded as one of Scotland’s and Radio 4’s most beloved comedians, she’s ready to to rip through all preconceptions of her once and for all as she tours her newest show The Calman Before the Storm.

Be prepared; there’s a storm coming, and it’s in the form of a tiny lady with nothing to lose.

Susan is set to set the record straight, to give it to the man (whoever he is).

Having worked on Death Row and at the United Nations in Geneva as a former corporate lawyer, Susan decided to give up her career to become a comedian.

It all started in 2006 when she reached the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy and So You Think You’re Funny Awards.

In 2007 she was part of sell- out Fringe show Ugly Kid which went on to become Channel 4’s Blowout and whose cast was awarded a Scottish BAFTA that same year.

Her numerous radio credits include The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth, Now Show, Dilemma, ISIHAC, So Wrong it’s Right and she has presented Woman’s Hour, all for Radio 4.

Sometimes Susan is allowed on television and has so far acted in How Not to Live Your Life, Rab C Nesbitt, Dead Boss and Fresh Meat.

She’s also appeared on Have I Got News for You, QI, Don’t Sit In The Front Row, Comedy Rocks, Show and Tell, The Matt Lucas Awards, Dara O’Briain’s School of Hard Sums, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Would I Lie To You and Mock the Week.

She’ll be at the McMillan Theatre in Bridgwater on Saturday, April 1.
