Susan Calman

Born in Glasgow, Susan Calman escaped corporate law in 2006 to become a stand-up comedian. She's now a regular on radio and television panel shows like QI, The News Quiz and I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue and has presented Armchair Detectives, the recent travel series Secret Scotland and her podcast Mrs Brightside. She recently appeared on Strictly Come Dancing where she made it all the way to Week Ten. Even more excitingly, she won the Glitterball on the Strictly Live tour. On top of this, Susan has written CHEER UP, LOVE, a funny, poignant and personal memoir on her life battling with, and finally coming to terms with her depression - personified by Susan as the Crab of Hate. Her second book, SUNNY SIDE UP, is a one-woman campaign to spread joy and kindness among the nation in what feels like a dark, shouty time for the world, and was inspired by her time on Strictly Come Dancing. SUNNY SIDE UP is out now in hardback, eBook and audio. An advocate for LGBTQ+ and mental health issues, Susan lives with her wife and cats in Glasgow. susancalman.com @SusanCalman Instagram: officialsusancalman
