Isy Suttie

Isy Suttie is an award-winning comedian, writer, songwriter and actress. Her TV acting credits include Peep Show, Shameless and Skins. She regularly performs to live audiences and on radio, including her Sony Award-winning BBC Radio 4 series Isy Suttie’s Love Letters, and has been nominated for a British Comedy Award three times. Isy has written for Red, Glamour, the Guardian and the Observer. The Actual One is Isy Suttie’s brilliantly funny memoir about that moment in your late 20s when you suddenly realize that all your mates are growing up without you.  The invisible deal that Isy had made – to prolong growing up for as long as possible – has all been in her head. Suddenly everyone around her is into mortgages, farmers’ markets and nappies, rather than skinny dipping in the sea and sambuca sessions on rope-swings. The Actual One is an ode to the confusing wilderness of youth, alongside a romantic quest for a genuinely good relationship with a man who doesn’t use moisturiser. @Isysuttie
