One of the most respected and honoured actresses in British history, Sue Hodge found fame as the waitress Mimi Labonq in the BBC sitcom 'Allo 'Allo! A trained dancer and theatre performer, Sue is famed for her comedy timing, wit and charm which is showcased through such stage shows as Vicar of Dibley. Available to book for corporate, public and private events like comedy festivals or industry exhibitions, Sue's respected position in comedy makes her the ideal entertainer.
After attending Gillian Farr school of Dance in Essex, Sue was headhunted by Gerry Jerome. Aged just 15, she appeared in Jack and the Beanstalk with Peter Glaze, star of Crackerjack. Sue very quickly stood out from the crowd, and was spotted by theatre producer Bill Kenwright to play Flora in The Innocents, his national tour. During this period, she performed alongside Sylvia Syms OBE, a talented British actress.
From Theatre to Comedy, Shakespeare to musicals, Sue honed her diverse range of skills as a young entertainer. More than a performer, she has also directed and choreographed both stage and screen shows, up and down the country. As a bookable act, she is also more than just a comedian, Sue is well equipped to host events and take part in insightful Q&A sessions.
Arguably, Sue's claim to fame was on 'Allo 'Allo!, the British sitcom series created by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd. Sue played Mimi Labonq, the hilarious Resistance waitress with a comical hatred of German Nazis. A slapstick celebration of traditional British comedy, the show won the heart of the nation from its very first episode, thanks to Sue's influential contribution. From 1984 to 1992, the show ran for nine incredibly successful seasons.
Many recognised Sue's talent on the show, so it is no surprise that she was asked to join the onstage Vicor of Dibley cast in 2014. Performed in Australia and directed by the Encore Theatre Company Director Jamie Hillard, the four-week show was a sell-out success. An event featuring Sue is sure to mimic such prominence, as she can draw audiences from far and wide with her star-studded reputation.
