There are very few individuals who can capture an audience, entertain, motivate and offer hope. Her words illustrated vivid imagery that the audience related to on a personal level and will be talking and laughing about for months to come.

The “golden rule” of comedy is to talk about the truth. Anytime you laugh at what a comedian says, it’s because it’s true. Susan highlights 5 important truths about life and shares how remembering these truths can make times of adversity and uncertainty appear more manageable.

A BIT MORE THAN A ROUGH PATCH: What A Comedian Learned About Taking Mental Health Seriously  

After enduring a mental health crisis in 2023, Susan shares her story to reduce stigma, normalize experiences such as depression and anxiety, and help people see the humour in the hard times in our lives.  

Susan shared about a subject that many find very difficult to talk about and she did so with humour. Her natural storytelling ability and the ease with which she connected to the audience by being vulnerable and real was truly amazing.  Susan is also really funny!  The feedback I have received from the team has been great – they loved Susan and the talk! Something that really amazed me was how comfortable the team was asking questions of Susan about her experience and what she would recommend to help others who may be struggling. That to me reiterates just how well she not only connected with the audience, made a heavy subject easier to discuss but also just how relevant the topic was. 

Erin Christopher, Town Of Newmarket

“Susan’s upbeat, laughter-filled presentation ended the conference on a high note…”
