Susan Calman - Lady Like

If you’ve seen her before, ‘Lady Like’ will be a reassuring couple of hours spent with the woman her neighbours call “the mad cat lady”. If you don’t know who she is, ‘Lady Like’ will, at the very least, make you feel better about your own life. A show about being older, wiser and liking yourself whatever anyone might say.
Comedy from Calman, as seen and heard on The News Quiz, Calman is Convicted (Best Radio Comedy 2013 – Writers Guild Award), QI, HIGNFY, Fresh Meat and Would I Lie To You.
"I'm really excited to put 20 years of being a professional rock n roll songwriter into spoken word and live performance. From the first Wildhearts album to the award winning 555%. It's not a pretty story, but there is plenty of drama and it has a happy ending. You'll laugh, you'll cry and through it all... you'll sing” GINGER
