Glaswegian Julia Sutherland was Fred MacAulay’s radio co-host when she stumbled into stand-up as part of an on-air stunt nearly a decade ago.
Now, she’s known for her observational as well as deeply personal confessional comedy, covering the gamut of experiences life has thrown her way. She picks apart modern life from her own unique perspective, getting laughs out of everything from life in two different bodies after major weight loss, to the inadequacies she feels as a parent.
An experienced broadcaster, Julia’s debut solo show Fat Chance was commissioned as a half hour special on BBC Radio 4; she hosted The Good The Bad and The Unexpected, and A Funny Kind of… on BBC Radio Scotland as well as appearing on Breaking The News and Radio 4 Extra Stands Up. Her TV credits Rory Bremner’s Rory Goes To Holyrood and Scotland’s Historic Year, both on BBC Two.
