Local comic to headline Black Country comedy festival

Award-winning Edinburgh veteran launches new show.

Willenhall’s semi-famous daughter and only full time stand-up comic, Susan Murray brings a new show, Ya Cor Say That, to the inaugural Black Country comedy festival, Funny Things on 1st November at The Gifford Arms.

Ya Cor Say That, is the brand new show by this insatiable comedian, as she wrestles with the funny side of middle age, her mother, undercooked bacon, the price of boilers and the current evil government.

Styled as a cross between Frankie Boyle and Julie Walters, Susan a Scot manufactured in the Black Country – will rocket you through an hour of top quality gags and dark observations.

Susan has already successfully performed four solo shows which drew critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival, where her warmth and razor-sharp wit won over new audiences and is due to go on tour with runner up of “Britain’s Got Talent”; Daliso Chaponda in 2018. She won the first ever Jongleurs new act competition, has contributed to an array of Radio 4 comedy and is the only woman to MC decompression gigs for the British Army.

Ya Cor Say That will be performed on 1st November at the Gifford Arms, Wolverhampton. Ticket Prices: £5 or pay what you want on the door and further details on the festival can be found on www.funny-things.co.uk.
