Stand Up at the Shire: Suzy Bennett

Stand up is returning to The Shire!

Tom Rodgers will be bringing some of the best acts across the UK each month. 

This month's line up features headliner Suzy Bennett 

March 8th is international women's day so what better way to celebrate than with an evening with three of the funniest women on the circuit. 

Suzy Bennett - Former Butlins Redcoat and proud Devonian  Suzy Bennett ‘accidentally’ won the prestigious Funny Women Award on her 6th gig and has kept the laughs, and her Janner accent, going strong ever since, performing around the UK comedy scene, festivals as well as overseas hosting large events as well as tour support for big name acts

Plymouth is where her heart is and Suzy has become a popular regular  guest on BBC Radio Devon. Most recently she was chosen as the voice of the ‘PlymouthTrails’ Tour app and was named as one of the ‘50 Coolest people from Plymouth’ by the Evening Herald (It was in no particular order so she assumes she came third after Dawn French and Wayne Sleep) 

In 2021 Suzy and fellow Plymouth Comedians launched ‘Plymouth Comedy Tours’ which has been selling out and receiving rave reviews on Trip Advisor which inspired them to create Christmas Special comedy tours which sold out like hot pasties! Suzy is returning to host the charity ball ‘Dine With Davina’ with Davina McCall for a second time in 2023 after proving to be a big hit with the star and audience. Suzy’s new sellout solo show ‘Forty Sem’ will be touring in 2024. Find Suzy on @funnysuzyb on Twittersuzybcomedy on Instagram and ‘Plymouth Comedy Tours’ on Facebook

Winner of the Funny Women Award. Tour support for Russell Kane

Anna Kierle - Daffy Cornish bumpkin Keirle has funny in her veins, with a disarming daftness and an endearingly babbling manner. She was a finalist of So You Think You’re Funny?, Funny Women Awards and the Leicester Mercury New Comedian of the Year.

'She bristles with fine, offbeat ideas and has plenty of funny lines… we could be looking at an emerging comedy star.'-Chortle

Mimi -In her first couple of years as a stand up comedian Mimi has taken Cornwall by storm with her quick wit and hilarious ditties.

Cornwall Comedian of the year '22 after just a handful of gigs mimi is certainly one to watch.
