She’s also a regular on TV shows from The Last Leg to Live at The Apollo, host of the hit podcast OUT and co-host of Like Minded Friends with Tom Allen. The Evening Standard describe Suzi as ‘exquisitely funny from the moment she sashays onto the stage.’

Popular on the club and festival circuit Suzi’s supported the likes of Romesh Ranganathan, Alan Carr, Joe Lycett, and Kevin Bridges on tour. A regular on TV and radio, Suzi’s appeared on Live at The Apollo, The Jonathan Ross Show, Mock the Week, The Last Leg, 8 Out of 10 Cats, and Radio 4’s The Now Show and The News Quiz.
