Suzi Ruffell: Common (Off The Kerb Productions)
By Daisy Malt | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2016
It’s hard not to find yourself endeared to a comic who welcomes you at the door, as if welcoming you into her home. Then, from the moment she arrives on stage she absolutely owns the room and the audience is with her from the very start. Despite what the title of her show might suggest, Suzi Ruffell has found that you can slide up the social hierarchy; but she has by no means forgotten her colourful roots – she is fiercely proud of where she comes from. Exuberant and affable, her anecdotes bring her family and friends to life. Ruffell has a great talent for telling a story then hitting you with punchlines you didn’t see coming.
Just The Tonic at The Mash House, until 28 Aug.
