WHO THE FUCK IS SUE?
Sue Gives A Fuck started life in front of RuPaul, as a finalist in RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Ambassador. It was her first time in drag, it was too much, and she didn’t like it. She was, however, immortalised by Katy Price in the words ‘Can I have a porn star martini? No? Ugh. Fine, my favourite’s Sue.’ Since then she’s gone on to host countless sell-out shows, win The Glory's Lipsync 1000, in which 100 of the UK’s best drag artists performed, and get crowned by Michelle Visage in 2019's You Better Werk competition. Now she’s largely abandoned her adoring fans in cabaret to perform on the comedy scene. Because someone has to educate straight people.
As a comedian she was a finalist in Hackney Empire's New Act of the Year 2019 and Museum of Comedy's New Comedian of the Year, two of the UK's most prestigious comedy competitions, and she's shared stages around the country with such acts as Ed Byrne, Al Murray, Ed Gamble, Nish Kumar... (basically all the straight men in chinos, so you know she's made it in comedy). She's basically what would happen if Bianca del Rio was a nice person.
Sue is currently starring in Sound of the Underground at The Royal Court Theatre.

The Independent – 5 stars – "daring in its originality, unapologetic in its message"

Broadway World – 5 stars - "It's outrageous, a fever dream in the best possible way, and surely like nothing the Royal Court has seen before. It's also just joyous to watch"
ToDoList – 4 stars - Special mention must go to the supreme Sue Gives A F*ck... such a magnetic stage presence, who perhaps seems the most at home on the Royal Court stage.
Timeout – 4 stars - "Woven into its spectacle and set-pieces is an electrically charged anger at the near impossibility of sustaining a liveable career in the arts."
