Susanna Lee is a standup comic, storyteller, and patron saint to provocateurs everywhere. She has done so much sh*t. She’s been professionally touring since August 20, 1996, when the Kramer International entertainment group, out of WhoCaresville, Michigan booked her on a college comedy tour, with a show titled “You Laugh, You Lose”. It was every bit as rigorously dispiriting as the title of the show would suggest, but her passion for performing survived, and in September 2017, Susanna Lee gave her first TED talk at TEDxKU, on the University of Kansas campus, where she’s also guest lectured on the artistry of standup comedy.
In addition to being a professional comedian, she’s lived a life filled with brilliantly odd adventures, including time spent performing with a circus sideshow, teaching yoga, and navigating the sex industry, all of which have contributed to the highly engaging and truly unique voice and presence for which she’s known and loved. She's been a guest on a ton of podcasts, including Joey "Coco" Diaz's "The Church Of What's Happening Now", “Risk! True Tales Boldly Told”, “Bawdy Storytelling”, and "The Mental Illness Happy Hour" with Paul Gilmartin. Susanna Lee has been seen on “Girls Behaving Badly” (Oxygen Network), “Party Legends” (Viceland), “America’s Court”, “Brides of Beverly Hills”, and for a brief second, “Last Comic Standing” (NBC/Universal). She earned SAG/Aftra eligibility during her first month living in Los Angeles, but instead spent her membership money on a medical marijuana card, heart-shaped sunglasses, and cheap skanky clothing, which, to date, has been her wisest investment.
Susanna created, produced, and starred in the webseries, "Peeping Comics", and co-produced and starred in the subsequent documentary "Pervs", which was featured at the 2015 LA Comedy Festival, won “Best Documentary” in the 2017 LA Femme Film Fest, and is currently available for viewing on Amazon Prime.
She's performed in numerous festivals, including-but-not-limited-to the Chicago, Bridgetown, Riot Grrrl, and Ventura Comedy Festivals; the Show-Me, Southern Fried, Best Of The Midwest, Colorado, New Orleans, and New York Burlesque Festivals and also held a headlining spot in the 2013 New Zealand Burlesque Fest.
She emceed and performed for the father of the modern-day sitcom, Norman Lear, at his 93rd birthday party. Yes, THE Norman Lear: creator of Good Times, The Jeffersons, Maude, One Day At A Time, etc etc etc. He gave her a m-f-ing standing ovation. Has he ever given YOU one? The man who made “DY-NO-MITE” a big thing in the 80’s rose to his 93-year old feet to applaud this gem of a performer, so why haven’t you booked her yet? Stop dragging your feet, our time here is not infinite.
She has excellent table manners, is fully housebroken, and comes with a 10-year, 100,000 mile, bumper-to-bumper warranty.
