Don't be fooled by the diminutive frame.
Within this pint-sized exterior lies a talent so huge that it can barely be
contained. Susan Morrison is a comedy volcano, erupting with an
endless flow of scorching hot gags, spewing forth at a blistering pace.
Whether performing her own solo act or
The Stand's big weekend gigs in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Susan is in
a class of her own when it comes to quick-fire wit. A forty-something
mother of two, Susan mixes real-life experiences, topical observations,
audience interaction and Glasgow style storytelling to spellbinding effect.
Presenting her own perspective on life, motherhood, shopping and shipping,
Susan's broad appeal transcends the sexes and unites audiences in
Susan's former experience as a marketing
foot soldier in a telecoms firm makes her a natural choice for corporate
gigs. And with her quick-thinking, fast-talking, no nonsense approach on
all manner of subjects - from showbiz trivia to political hot potatoes -
Susan was a frequent contributor to BBC Radio Scotland. In addition
to regular appearances on the "The Fred MacAulay Show", she has
recently presented radio documentaries on subjects as diverse as the
history of toilets (“On The Throne”) and the positive effects of
laughter (“Laughter - the Best Medicine”). This lead to a permanent
seat at the breakfast table. Until recently Susan co-presented The Morning Show
on Edinburgh talk radio station
Talk 107 each weekday.
Having headlined clubs throughout Scotland
and northern England - from Chester to Carlisle - Susan launched herself
onto the Edinburgh Fringe with her own show in 2001, "My Life With The
Titanic". A self-confessed obsessive, her love of the famous liner
translated into a huge critical success and audience hit, despite the
seeming lack of humour in the subject matter. No less impressive was her
trawl through Edinburgh’s murky past with her 2002 solo Fringe show,
Auld Reekie’s Oxters. It’s no mean feat to raise laughs out of such
hopelessly lost causes. But that's Susan Morrison for you - never taking
the easy route, but always reaching the most hilarious destinations.
Susan has gone from strength-to-strength
in 2005, using her energetic brand of comedy to good effect in presenting
'Where's your head at?' on Scottish and Grampian Television, as warm-up
artist for a succession of BBC TV recordings and her sharp, cutting satire
in the popular live topical comedy show, A Kick Up The Tabloids, and
a number of key appearances at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival.
A big, big talent in an unfeasibly small frame.
