SUZI RUFFELL NEWS
Join two of comedy's rising young stand up stars as they embark on their first UK tours. Both fresh from supporting their comedy peers and idols, Romesh Ranganathan (returned from tours supporting Seann Walsh, Bill Burr and Ricky Gervais) and Suzi Ruffell (back from opening for Josh Widdicombe, Alan Carr and Kevin Bridges) will now take their hotly anticipated shows on the road.
Rom Wasn't Built in a Day
Join Romesh Ranganathan as he hits the road with his eagerly anticipated brand new show Rom Wasn’t Built In A Day. The last eighteen months have been incredible for Ranganathan with him winning the prestigious Leicester Mercury New Act Award and his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival debut being nominated for the coveted Best Newcomer Award, culminating in his debut appearance on Mock The Week, Live At The Apollo, Russell Howard's Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, a regular slot on Channel 4's weekly topical show Stand Up For The Week, hosting BBC Radio 4 Extra's Newsjack and an appearance Radio 4's long-running and beloved The Now Show.
Fresh from supporting some of the UK's top comedians on their sold out tours, Suzi Ruffell hits the road with her hotly anticipated second show Social Chameleon. In it the 'stand-up gem' (The Guardian) questions why she spent twenty-seven years trying to make anyone and everyone like her. Turns outs it takes a fat bully from Swansea, a too-honest mother and searching a Parisian graveyard for someone she has never heard of to give up trying and just be herself and yes we are all hoping she hasn't turned out to be a dickhead.
