Maisie Adam and Suzi Ruffell are bringing football fun to Bristol this month

Posted on: 09 May 2024

Maisie Adam and Suzi Ruffell are taking their award-winning podcast 'Big Kick Energy' on the road for their first ever live shows – and they’re coming to Bristol this month, Friday 24 May.


Kicking off in the summer of 2023, Big Kick Energy is a podcast covering the beautiful game of women’s football. From the highs and lows of supporting their local team, Brighton, to hanging out with the Lionesses, Maisie and Suzi are ready to bring their big podcast energy to a live audience.


Maisie Adam, known for her sharp wit and engaging storytelling, gained popularity after winning the prestigious ‘So You Think You're Funny?’ award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017. Her comedy often revolves around her experiences growing up in Yorkshire, tackling topics such as family, relationships, and everyday life with humour and charm. Adam has appeared on various TV shows (Mock The Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats) and podcasts (The Guilty Feminist, The Adam Buxton Podcast).



Suzi Ruffell is the perfect partner-in-footy for Adam, from her energetic and honest style of comedy, to her witty observations on topics such as LGBTQ+ issues, mental health, and everyday life experiences. Ruffell has performed at numerous comedy festivals and venues across the UK, and appeared on TV shows like Live at the Apollo and Mock the Week among others.


Adam and Ruffell will be coming to perform a live episode of their podcast, Big Kick Energy, at Bristol Folk House on Friday 24 May – in partnership with Bristol’s favourite fringe comedy venue, The Room Above. The event page promises that the tour will feature special guests, although there’s no word who as of yet.



So, if you’re a football fan, a comedy fan, both, or just looking for a fun time, head down to the Bristol Folk House this month, Friday 24 May. For tickets, head here.
