DIARY: Addition’s Sutcliffe stands up for herself

Flicking through the biographies of speakers at last weekend’s IPR conference I stumbled on the unusual entry of Addition PR managing director Hilary Sutcliffe whose hobbies include stand-up comedy.

director Hilary Sutcliffe whose hobbies include stand-up comedy.



It seems the outgoing 36- year-old took a course on comedy improvisation

last year and has done seven gigs in such glamour spots as The King’s

Head in Crouch End.



Sutcliffe claims that she went down a storm on the first night, but

after that her act failed to raise even a smirk from the punters and she

has abandoned comedy for a course in novel writing (look out Graham

Lancaster).



‘It was so frightening,’ she explains. ‘It’s not just that the audience

is saying they don’t like the material but they don’t like you. It was

far too scary.’
