Stand Up

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 hosting 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 hysterical laughter.

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.
