A stalwart of the live UK circuit Susan was main tour support for runner up of Britain’s Got Talent 2017; Daliso Chaponda who paved the way for other stand ups to invade that show.

“A feisty comedy fireball of fun” Time Out

 “Mainstream success written all over her….brightly energetic, a real talent” Edinburgh


Susan has gained high praise from other fellow comedians, with Al Murray describing her as “Cynicism that could fell a rhino at 1000 paces. Like it.” and Stewart Lee suggesting “Susan Murray’s baffled everywoman persona cloaks a dry, intelligent wit.” 

Susan also runs her own successful comedy club, The Red Imp, Walthamstow, London, which regularly showcases news material by some of the most successful and instantly recognizable comedians in the UK.
