Budge up Elf, Susan’s been on this shelf a lot longer than you and it doesn’t look like she’s going anywhere any time soon.
Life is not a Hallmark Christmas film and thank God for that as the main character usually abandons her successful career after bumping into her high school boyfriend and falling madly in love. Susan bumped into her high school boyfriend in a Wetherspoons last Christmas and he was a divorced coke head with Turkey teeth! Luckily for her she has a career in stand up comedy and she quite likes talking about this stuff on stage.
It can be lonely at Christmas - there’s a song about it and everything - but instead of going on another bad date or drunk texting your ex, make the healthier decision of seeing ‘Self on the Shelf’ and listen to Susan talk about HER bad dates and texting HER ex. Other topics include: her peculiar co- parenting situation, her shameful Himbo fetish and fear of sex robots. On the upside, after attending a gazillion weddings she has a good idea of what her perfect ‘Big Day’ will look like but it’s not what you think. Budge up Elf, Susan’s been on this shelf a lot longer than you and it doesn’t look like she’s going anywhere soon - in fact, she quite likes it here.
As seen on: Jonanthan Ross Comedy Club (ITV) Bafta Award winning Scot Squad (BBC) As heard on: BBC Breaking the News and BBC Radio 4 Best of the Fest.
