The ﬁrst openly gay comedian in the United States, Suzanne has delivered gay material to straight audiences in mainstream comedy clubs beginning in NYC since the early ’90s. After accepting a dare, she entered the world of comedy by accident and her life has never been the same since. Suzanne soon became the ﬁrst lesbian comedian to garner an HBO Comedy Special, earning her a Cable Ace Award nomination.
Additionally, a performance on “Late Night with David Letterman” marked the ﬁrst by an openly lesbian comedian. Suzanne works mostly unscripted, so when she hits the stage it’s an unpredictable, original night of comedy magic. On land or at sea, Suzanne delights audiences with over 100 performances a year at theatres, clubs, colleges, fundraisers and cruise and resort vacations (Olivia, Sweet and RSVP Vacations).
Having toured with the Indigo Girls and Ani DiFranco while on Olivia Cruises, Suzanne wishes she’d been born a rockstar. Her comedy special and documentary, “A Bottom on Top,” aired on LOGO Television in fall 2007. In the summer of 2006, Suzanne starred nightly on the GSN’s remake of the classic game show, “I’ve Got a Secret.” HBO, Bravo and LOGO TV specials dot her resume.
In the past year, she’s ended up on the cutting room floor of a movie in post-production, gotten a divorce, re-entered the insanity of the dating world – all of which have created more laughter-inducing opportunities than she ever thought possible.
She’s bad…and she knows it. She’s also rip-roaring hilarity wrapped up with a silver bow and a gift tag that says, “Just Try Me.” All we have to say about that is…”Where do we sign up?”
Suzanne’s new material is based on her ever-changing view of life after…well, everything. She’s a brand-new woman around town with striking insights based on a jilted year that has finally – thankfully -– ended. Stick with her and she’ll take you for a ride on the wild side with plenty of Pinot to keep it interesting. All aboard!
