Twitter sensation and BBC Radio 4 regular, Sooz Kempner takes to the road in her debut UK comedy tour, following a totally sold-out Edinburgh Festival residency which played to notable critical acclaim. She will be coming to Brighton Thu 18.05.2023 at Komedia (Studio)
In 1998, Sooz got a PlayStation, a console for the first generation of adult gamers, and finally felt grown-up.
But is she a grown up, even now? Audiences will find out in ‘Playstation’, a stand-up show exploring memories of growing up in the 90s through comedy anecdotes, song and multimedia accompaniments. Replete with nostalgia, Playstation is a show for anyone who remembers the 90s or had big dreams as a kid (gamers and non-gamers alike)!
Sooz is an award-winning comedy performer, singer, writer, and actor who has written and performed eight solo stand-up hours at the Edinburgh Fringe. She is a regular collaborator with Richard Thomas (Jerry Springer the Opera, Made in Dagenham) and hosts two podcasts, Mystery on the Rocks and QueenPod, the official podcast for the band Queen. She will soon be seen in the upcoming Amazon Prime series Dinner With The Parents, a US remake of Friday Night Dinner.
Throughout lockdown, Sooz went viral time and time again with a variety of online content including hilarious performances as Nadine Dories and Liz Truss, unforgettable turns such as performing Trump speeches verbatim Liza Minnelli, and tales of her time as a Christina Aguilera tribute act for a company that turned out to be a money laundering operation for the Cypriot mafia.
