Following on from our announcement last week that Susan Calman has joined our Big Comedy Gala line-up, here’s a wee cheeky Q & A with Susan for your pleasure!
What is your involvement in the Big Comedy Gala?
I’m performing at the Big Gala Comedy.
Who is your favourite comedy hero, act or actor?
Difficult to name one but I think Joyce Grenfell would be my pick.
Favourite comedy moment (your own or someone else’s)?
When I saw French and Saunders live in Edinburgh in the early 90’s: I’ve never forgotten how wonderful they were.
What in your everyday life always makes you laugh?
Almost everything. I try to laugh almost all the time.
Who is your secret celebrity crush?
Can’t say. I’m just married; I’d like it to last a year.
In five words, why should people come to (or support) The Big Comedy Gala?
Funny night for wonderful cause.
You heard what the lady said, guys; a funny night for a wonderful cause! So with less than two weeks to go, get your tickets now if you haven’t already bought them!
