Comedian Suzi Ruffell joined Jon Holmes to discuss her new show Common.

She explained that her show is about "reclaiming my working class roots." Although she used to be embarrassed about her background, she says she's now proud and wanted to shake up the comedy scene, which she described as a "middle-class place."

Ruffell also revealed how she decides her opening routine, saying she gauges "who’s in the room and that’ll be the kick off point."

She also added: “I don’t think there’s a time that’s been better for women in comedy."
