ISY SUTTIE The Actual One
A brilliantly witty debut from the much-loved comedian – and an ode to the confusing wilderness of her late twenties. Isy Suttie woke up one day in her late twenties to discover that the invisible deal she’d done with her best mates – that they’d prolong growing up for as long as possible – had all been in her head. Everyone around her is suddenly into mortgages and farmers’ markets, rather than the idea of running naked into the sea or getting hammered in Plymouth with eighty-year-old men. When her dearest friend advises her that the next guy Isy meets will be ‘The Actual One’, Isy decides to keep delaying the onset of adulthood – until a bet with her mother results in a quest for a genuinely good relationship with a man who doesn’t use moisturiser. Isy Suttie is a comedian, actress and writer. She has written for the Guardian, the Observer, Red and Glamour, and is a regular writer and performer on BBC Radio 4, where her show Pearl and Dave won a Gold Sony Award in 2013 and led to two series of her musical story show, Isy Suttie’s Love Letters. Her TV acting credits include Peep Show and Shameless, and she has been nominated for three British Comedy Awards.
