Comedy Pick: Suzi Ruffell
Find her at Glee Club
One of the great things about Suzi Ruffell is that she feels like a red-hot rising star, while those of us in the know have been fans of the observational comedian for the best part of a decade. The adage of taking 10 years to become an overnight success rings particularly true when it comes to stand-up. To the uninitiated, Suzi is an electrifying live presence, pacing the stage like a panther while sharing the sort of anecdotes that prove oddly reassuring: as you'll discover, it's not just you who's made questionable life decisions down the years. Suzi's made 'em and, by shots, does she enjoy regaling you with them. Like her pal Alan Carr, Suzi's self-deprecation is served with a healthy side portion of warmth; by the end of the night, you won't only have enjoyed one of the best comedians in the business, you'll want to be her mate. On May 7 and 8. Tickets are £12.
