Suzy Bennett – Forty-Sem

Saturday, November 25

Award Winning comedian Suzy Bennett is ‘Living La Vida Local’ and making her Barbican Theatre debut with a solo show celebrating the privilege of becoming the same age as Frasier in Season 7.

Proud Janner Suzy has settled back in her hometown, topping up her accent to tell hilarious tales of living back with Mum, lockdown regrets, finding love with a man in the audience, learning that peri-menopause is nothing to do with hot sauce, negotiating hipster eateries, blending in with the youths at festivals, #Wildswimming adventures and maybe most importantly – where to find the best pasty in town.

Suzy embraced midlife after finding her ‘gumption’ partly in thanks to fellow ‘47er’Kate Winslet and a word of advice from a random woman in an airport. Her relatable stories have people crying with laughter and there’s rarely a dry eye (or seat) in the house!

Join Suzy for an evening of Living, Loving and Laughing. Suzy was thrilled to be included in the Evening Herald ‘Top 50 Coolest people’ list. It was in no particular order so decided she was probably third after Tom Daley and Larry Speare.

Accolades: Winner of the Funny Women Award. Finalist in Jimmy Carr’s Comedy Idol Best ‘fancy strut’ – Gold Star Majorettes Awarded ‘Top Fan’ badge on Plymouth Live.

Quotes: ‘A charm-bomb’ – Russell Kane ‘Very very funny’ – Davina McCall ‘The physical presence and panache of a young Dawn French’ – Chortle ‘Hilarious! Like a Westcountry Caroline Aherne’ – Terry Christian
