In Detail

Susan Calman gave up a lucrative career in corporate law to become a comedian and has since proven to be a popular star on TV, radio and on the live stage. After starting comedy as a hobby, Susan turned her back on her life as a barrister when she noticed more and more clients turning up to her gigs. Deciding this was a difficult professional balancing act to maintain (especially when clients provide so much material), Susan successfully embraced a comedy career. She reached the semi-finals of the BBC New Comedy Awards, was a finalist in the prestigious Funny Women competition, and won Best New Comedian at The Real Radio Scottish Variety Awards. Susan continues to gig around the country and has always been a massive hit at the Edinburgh Fringe.


Susan has an infectious bubbly manner but a caustic edge too, and both can yield comedy gold. She fizzes manic energy, alternating between confessional tales and playing with facts she teases out of the audience. Her warm, energetic onstage presence makes for an unforgettable experience for the audience.
