Writer, comedian and actress Isy Suttie performs an abridged version of her The Actual One tour and talks with fellow writer and comedian Josie Long about the book behind the show.

Suttie will talk, do a reading and sings some songs accompanied by her guitar, followed by a question and answer session with Long.

The Actual One is about the moment that Suttie realised all her friends were growing up around her, getting mortgages, going to farmers’ markets and having babies, while she was not. She decides to delay the onset of adulthood despite a close friend telling her the next man she meets will be ‘the actual one’. Then, a bet with her mother leads to a mad scramble to find a boyfriend in a month.

Suttie is best known for playing the character Dobby in the sitcom, Peep Show. She is also winner of a gold Sony Radio Academy Award for her radio show, Pearl and Dave. Long is a writer and stand-up comedian. She has performed six stand-up shows at the Edinburgh festival and toured them around the UK.
