A professional of the comedy circuit, Susan has contributed to an array of Radio 4 comedy: The Now Show, News Quiz, Newsjack and The Show What You Wrote. Susan produced her original idea for Radio 4 Extra “Warming Up” about comedians’ backstage habits. She has starred in “Jeremy Hardy Speaks To The Nation” and was a guest on Stephen K Amos’ “Idiots Guide” both for BBC Radio 4.

'... a right cheeky little lass who oscillates brilliantly and wildly between characters,
accents, stories and banging the mike on her head' (Three Weeks)

'A feisty comedy fireball of fun' (Time Out).

Markus is an original and highly talented stand up. He has been described by the BBC as “the all-round package; witty, controversial, hip, topical, silly. A master of timing and physical comedy."

He was nominated for the NZ Comedy Guild Award as Best International Artist 2014.

'Delightfully comic. Controversial, personal and wickedly punchy' (The List)

'... already on his way up...' (Time Out)
'Second to none' (Adelaide Advertiser)
'Infectious, likeable and popular... A consummate comic... energetic, engaging, thought-provoking and funny' (The Stage).
