Susan Calman 'Lady Like'

BCEX presents
Susan Calman 'Lady Like'

Her first UK tour - Autumn 2014

 

Award-winning comedian Susan Calman is embarking on her first ever UK tour. 

 

If you’ve seen her before, ‘Lady Like’ will be a reassuring couple of hours spent with the woman her neighbours call “the mad cat lady”.  If you don’t know who she is, ‘Lady Like’ will, at the very least, make you feel better about your own life.   A show about being older, wiser and liking yourself whatever anyone might say.

 

Comedy from Calman, as seen and heard on The News Quiz, Calman is Convicted (Best Radio Comedy 2013 – Writers Guild Award), QI, HIGNFY, Fresh Meat and Would I Lie To You.

Strictly only over 16’s permitted.
