Susan Calman: Lawyer Turned Stand Up Comic

For some time, Scottish lawyer Susan Calman, 34, had been leading a double life, working as a standup comic at night, and working as a lawyer by day. This June she decided to make the leap and quit her £50,000-a-year career as a corporate lawyer with Dundas & Wilson in June to pursue stand-up comedy full time.

Calman thinks her legal training will help her in her new career: "You have to be quick on your feet as a lawyer."

See writeups on Calman in the Scottish press here and here.
