Funny lass Isy Suttie tours with her new show, Jackpot, in which she’ll regale audiences with stories of thrill seeking and attempts to reframe the hilarities of motherhood and married life.

Now she’s got children of her own and a partner who detests surprises, in her return to live stand-up the Peep Show star asks whether it’s enough to try and find that buzz on mums’ weekends away or on family walks in the woods, and quite why she continues to hunt for it at all costs. Visiting Newcastle’s Stand Comedy Club on Tuesday 20th September, Suttie’s irrepressible charm and easy audience rapport is a boon indeed, and her career so far has been bang on trend for all things funny. Whether you’ve seen her as Dobby in Channel 4’s Peep Show, Esther in Shameless, Ally in Man Down, or on Would I Lie To You, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Hypothetical or Q.I., it’ll come as no surprise that Suttie has been nominated for three British Comedy Awards and won a gold Sony Award for her BBC Radio 4 series Isy Suttie’s Love Letters. Furthermore the paperback of her acclaimed second book, Jane Is Trying, was released in spring 2022, further proving that while her thrill seeking days may be over, her career is as riveting as ever.

Isy Suttie is at The Stand, Newcastle on Tuesday 20th September.
