SHREWSBURY INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL 2019
BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA
The brand new show by this insatiable comedian, who has been described as a cross between Frankie Boyle and Julie Walters.
This Scot, manufactured in the Black Country, performs an hour of top quality gags and dark observations as she fights against the nations obsession with Olivia bloody Coleman, a self inflicted mortal fear of flying, weird brothers, mad aging parents and most of all... Highways England. Basically, the world at large, which is no mean feat for someone who is riddled with loathing and self doubt.
A professional of the comedy circuit, Susan won the first ever Jongleurs new act competition and has contributed to an array of Radio 4 comedy: The Now Show, News Quiz, Newsjack and The Show What You Wrote, Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation and was a guest on Stephen K Amos' Idiots Guide.
She is the only woman to MC decompression gigs for the British Army. Not only that, Susan is a published author and wrote the chapter on comedy in the bestselling cult book Counter Culture UK; A Celebration.
