Susan has parlayed her ten years as a high school teacher into a promising comedy career. (Ironically, the former teacher was a high school dropout – probably because she didn’t “just say no to drugs” until 20 years later.) In the classroom, she delivered facts and nurtured young minds; on stage this comedian turns truths inside out through gentle sarcasm.
Susan’s philosophy about comedy is simple: “the truth doesn’t have to hurt; it’s also not G-rated.” Paradoxically, what’s most refreshing about her approach is that she doesn’t use her disregard for the G-rating as a license to be crude. Susan wholeheartedly believes there’s no better medicine than laughter. “Life’s full of hurdles: sometimes we’re stopped by them, which is sad; sometimes we leap over them, which is great; I frequently trip over them – that’s just funny.”
After a decade of snorting chalk dust in the Pacific Northwest, Susan moved to Oklahoma. Dared to take the stage during Open-Mic Night at a local comedy club, she made some people laugh and has been hooked ever since. Susan was a finalist in the 2007 Oklahoma’s Funniest Person Contest, and a semifinalist in the 2009 Gulf South Comedy Challenge. In 2009, she also was featured in Tulsa People Magazine.
In 2010, Susan’s tour went international when she entertained troops in Kuwait and Iraq. She currently braves weather and speed traps throughout the country to bring her edgy, honest comedy to the stage.
