In 1978 while still just a child, Suzanne ran away from home and ended up in the fascinating world of Burlesque.
In 1989 on a dare from a friend, she tried her hand at stand up comedy, and on her first open mic night, was asked to headline a club in north Pittsburgh. The rest as they say, is history.
The character Suzanne most often performs as, "Bag Lady Sue" is absolutely adorable whether the material is mild of wild, and she gets away with adult content that might shock the more shy crowd.
Sue also "performs" as herself! Sue also presents funny, spiritually uplifting talks at conferences and conventions across the country.
As of May 2021 she published her very intimate autobiography "FROM BAGS TO RICHES"
Which is available here and on Amazon.
