Former Butlins Redcoat and proud Devonian Suzy Bennett ‘accidentally’ won an award on her 6th gig and has kept the laughs, and her accent, going strong ever since, performing around the UK as well as overseas.
She is the voice of the ‘PlymouthTrails’ Tour app and was recently 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)

She has also hosted the Playtex Moonwalk twice in Hyde Park entertaining 17,000 people wearing a novelty bra! 

NB: This year before she gets married, Suzy will be doing the moonwalk in Iceland for all the women in her life instead of an official Hen night.  Please do sponsor her if you can as she loves doing the Cottage shows as much as we love having her. Whatever you can spare she would be grateful . ..

'One of my favourite circuit comedians' (Stylist magazine)

'Undeniable confidence and verve ..the physical presence and panache of Dawn French’ ' (chortle)
