“Anyone who loves the work of Sarah Millican & Kerry Godliman will find plenty to enjoy here” The Guardian
 

A professional of the comedy circuit, Susan won the first ever Jongleurs new act competition and has  contributed to an array of Radio 4 comedy: The Now Show, News Quiz, Newsjack and The Show What You Wrote, Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation and was a guest on Stephen K Amos’ Idiots Guide .

She is the only woman to MC decompression gigs for the British Army. Not only that Susan is a published author and wrote the chapter on comedy in the bestselling cult book Counter Culture UK; A Celebration.

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.

Susan has already successfully performed four solo shows Edinburgh Festival and in 2018 co-hosted a monthly show called “You Have Been Warned with Ninia and Susan” on East London Radio.

 

Her razor sharp wit has not gone unnoticed with press reviews including;

“Energetic, comical and charming, Susan Murray captivated the audience with her personal engagement creating the most hilarious comedy show opening in Belfast so far” Love Belfast 

“ Susan has the ability to make quirky connections allows her to build a compelling believable and richly funny picture of 21st century womanhood. Anyone who loves the work of Sarah Millican and Kerry Godliman will find plenty to enjoy here” The Guardian 

“A feisty comedy fireball of fun” Time Out

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

 

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.
