Sue Perkins - The Disappointing Second Show

Disappointment is Sue's middle name. Her mum had preferred Elizabeth, but was overruled by her dad, who had an altogether darker view of life. Croydon's favourite clown's second solo show, deals with the many ways life falls short and lets us down. Featuring all new jokes about sadness, disease and rejection, plus special appearances from the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Microsoft Paper Clip and a 98 year old homophobic grandmother. Sue has appeared in Have I Got News For You, Ready Steady Cook (BBC2); has written additional material for Ab Fab, and appears regularly on radio shows such as It's Been A Bad Week (Radio2) and Just A Minute (R4)
