Full press release
Suzy Bennett makes her long awaited debut solo show in Edinburgh this year at the Pleasance Courtyard. Join star of the Comedy Reserve 2012 and winner of the Funny Women Award. Suzy Bennett on her hilarious quest to become a minor celebrity and her slippery journey to become future Queen of the Ice! In her debut show Suzy shares the highs and lows of her pursuit of happiness...and Torvill & Dean. In this show she talks about her addictions to both men and food and her recent stint in rehab where she was literally skating on thin ice!
Suzy's ultimate dream, of course, is to be chosen to take part in Dancing On Ice, to move from over-enthusiastic audience member to 'skating star' introduced by silver fox Phillip Schofield and glide onto the ice in a sparkly costume to rapturous applause and perfect scores just like her much loved heroes.
A former winner of the prestigious Funny Women Award, Suzy is a dynamo of a comic, with a uniquely warm and chatty stage presence which means she is a brilliant MC as well an act. After her appearance on Comedy Idol, Suzy was asked by Jimmy Carr to support him on his Gag Reflex tour. In August 2012 she performed at Edinburgh as part of the Comedy Reserve at the Pleasance Theatre, one of the most prestigious showcases for up and coming comics.
Suzy has supported Jo Brand, Jan Ravens, Janice Connelly, Meera Syal and Rhona Cameron to name a few, she has been a guest on Five Live with Richard Bacon discussing topical news, a podcast for The Sun website with Zoe Lyons and various magazine interviews including Time Out where she was named and interviewed as one of Top Ten acts to watch.
