Cute, clever music-based comedy from the Peep Show comedian

Best known as geek love interest Dobby from Peep Show, Suttie’s an incredibly likeable comedian. Mixing stand-up and music, her humour has a real warmth and the stuttering love story of Pearl and Dave that runs through the show is instantly engaging and surprisingly moving. However the problem with comedy songs is they’re often cute and clever rather than belly-laugh funny.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 29 Aug, 5pm, £10–£11.50 (£9–£10.50).
