Lakin McCarthy presents 'SUSAN CALMAN – THE CALMAN BEFORE THE STORM'

It’s Susan Calman’s tenth year in comedy and she’s back with a brand
new show.  You may have seen or heard her on shows like QI, HIGNFY, News Quiz, Listomania or Mock the Week, now you have the opportunity to see her in person, life size if you will.  For information Susan is taller than a borrower but shorter than the average thirteen year old child.

The show?  Well she’s ready to create a storm, to set the record straight, to give it to the man (whoever he is).   Incidentally she would also like to be Batman.  Ninety minutes of comedy that you will enjoy if you’re over 16, like what she does, and won’t be so drunk that she has to throw you out.  Sounds like a terrible personal ad doesn’t it?  She also likes fine wines, kittens and walks along the beach.
Seriously.  It’s going to be epic.

Susan has also written a book called “Cheer up Love: Adventures in Depression with the Crab of Hate”. It’s about depression but don’t worry, it’s funny as well. Audiobook and hardback versions are available online and in all good bookshops.

“The high energy throughout her unswerving flow of entertaining quips and hilarious anecdotes, leaves a never dull moment for audiences… a show that shouldn’t be missed” ★★★★★ – EDINBURGH FESTIVAL MAGAZINE
“Properly funny… its lovely!” ★★★★ – THE SCOTSMAN
“The iron fist of political comment is disguised in the velvet glove of her gushing, affable approach” ★★★★ – CHORTLE
“Cutting and clever” ★★★★ – THE EDINBURGH REPORTER
