Suzi Ruffell.

Suzi Ruffell is set to tour her new show Dance Like Everyone's Watching this autumn.

Her promoters explain: "Suzi has made a name for herself by turning tragedy and anxiety into big laughs. This year she is actually happy. This show answers the question: are all stand-ups at their best when they are miserable? Fingers crossed no!

"Of course, the world is still completely f**ked - so don't worry, it won't be too joyous. A mix of storytelling, observations, a dash of social politics and a lovely routine about a smear test. This show has everything."

Ruffell will hone the show at the Edinburgh Fringe in August (Pleasance Courtyard, daily at 8:30pm), before touring it between October and December.

Following on from her previous shows - Keeping It Classy and Nocturnal - Ruffell's profile continues to grow. As her promoters point out: "Suzi's star is certainly on the rise, with her being recently named as the Chortle Best Club Act 2019 - to add to a nomination for Best Breakthrough Act at The Chortle Awards in 2017.

"It has been a busy few years for her, with three sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival resulting in her recording her show Keeping It Classy for Live From The BBC (which was released last summer) and a clip racking up over 16 million views on Facebook. Her shows receive critical acclaim and have nabbed her the working-class comedy crown of her generation."

They add: "The last twelve months have been massive for Suzi Ruffell, with a smash-hit, sell-out UK tour, heaps of television appearances (including Live At The Apollo and Mock The Week), and she's even learnt how to make the perfect lemon cake. She is also a regular on BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz and The Now Show, and co-hosts the hit podcast Like Minded Friends with chum and fellow stand-up Tom Allen. Other TV credits include Roast Battle, Ultimate Worrier, Hypothetical, Stand Up Central and Suzi Ruffell Live From The Comedy Store."

Aside from working on the tour, Ruffell is currently developing her own sitcom and a fact-based entertainment show.
