Episode 2

New stand-up series in which Susan Calman explores the things in her life that bring her joy. This week, aided by her wife and audience, she presents a love letter to television.

Taking part in Strictly Come Dancing made Susan Calman happy. Completely, totally happy. And having lived with anxiety for so long, it was something of a surprise to discover something new that gave her feelings of joy. So, in Susan Calman Makes Me Happy, she explores and explains the other things in life that bring her happiness.

This week, aided and abetted by her studio audience and wife Lee, Susan presents a love letter to the gogglebox. From the enormous rented behemoth of her childhood through to the modern day box-set you can watch on your phone anywhere you like, television has been an ever-present comfort and teacher for her.
