SEE SUZI RUFFELL’S NOCTURNAL – LIVE
Comedian Suzi Ruffell has delighted on Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week, and now she’s bringing her show Nocturnal to the somewhat more intimate venue of Blackheath Halls. A born worrier, Suzi frets about everything, from someone breaking into her flat, to human rights across the globe, to her cat’s quality of life. The good news is, she’s a dab hand at channeling her anxiety into her humour. If you missed Suzi’s sell-out tour last year, now’s your chance to see her live. Blackheath Halls, 23 Lee Road, Blackheath, London SE3 9RQ. May 25, from 8pm – 10pm. Admission: £12.
