Susan Calman is a Scottish comedian who divides her busy performing schedule between TV appearances and gigging up and down - and across - the British Isles, performing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe as well as selling out London theatres.
Susan established herself as a top comedian after reaching the semi-finals of the BBC's New Comedy Awards and then becoming a finalist in the prestigious Funny Women competition in 2006. In 2007, she was cast in Ugly Kid, a sketch show that was a sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival and which, following critical acclaim, was commissioned as a pilot for Channel 4. The show was renamed Blowout and the cast went on to be awarded a Scottish BAFTA. She was subsequently awarded "Best New Comedian" at The Real Radio Scottish Variety Awards and Best MC at the Chortle awards in 2012.
On BBC Radio 4, Susan has appeared on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth, The Now Show, Dilemma, So Wrong It’s Right and, in a more serious vein, has also presented Woman’s Hour. On BBC Radio 2, she has appeared on And the Winner Is (with Matt Lucas). She also regularly presents Macaulay and Co on Radio Scotland.
Television work includes roles in How Not to Live your Life, Rab C Nesbitt, Dead Boss and Fresh Meat. Susan has also made guest appearances on Have I Got News for You, QI, Don’t Sit In The Front Row, Comedy Rocks, Show and Tell and Comedy at the Fringe.
