Susan Stewart

Comedian, Author, Motivational Speaker; The Lighter Side of Work & Life


Susan Stewart blends the wit and comedy she’s known for with a moving message about not taking life too seriously. From healing stress with humour to putting the powers of a positive mindset to work, Susan shares the art and practice of seeing the lighter side of life with audiences, leaving everyone more uplifted and motivated than when they arrived. As she says herself, “laughter is the experience, and transformation is the outcome.”  +

On a mission to help people see the lighter side of life, Susan delivers a unique combination of comedy and inspiration that reveals how we can take life too seriously and how to meet adversity with a positive outlook, and of course, a sense of humour.

Professionally speaking, Susan has taken a winding road. After earning a Theatre Arts degree from the University of Waterloo, Susan moved to Toronto and began performing stand-up comedy and toured a one-woman show to various Fringe Theatre festivals around Canada.

Five years into her comedy career, fear and self-doubt manifested into depression and anxiety which led Susan to quit doing comedy and uncertain if she would ever perform on stage again.

After quitting stand-up comedy, Susan landed a Human Resources position with the Ontario Government (a very long story and feel free to laugh) where she was asked to write and present a comical presentation about wellness at a staff professional development conference. Susan’s presentation was a smash-hit and as they say, the rest is history. Susan eventually left her office life to return to the stage full-time.

For the past 10 years, she has been touring around North America using her comedic powers for good, rather than evil. --


Susan Stewart's Speaking Presentations:

YOU GOTTA LAUGH: Healing Stress with Humour

Of course, you don’t gotta laugh, it’s just that you can – it’s always an option – that’s the freedom of choice we were born with – we are always free to choose how we want to respond to our circumstances. In this entertaining hour, Susan will remind your group how important it is to not take things too seriously and share some ways to see the lighter side of life.

YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS! Why Science Wants Us to Lighten Up

This interactive presentation is based on the scientific research that has proven that 75% of our professional success is determined by our interest in feeling good and our ability to be resilient in the face of adversity. In her signature comedic style, Susan examines the findings that have led to that statistic by revealing the truth about the relationship between happiness and success, the biological advantages of a “positive brain”, what truly makes us happy, and three simple ways to put the powers of a positive mindset to work.

A Comedian’s Journey to Finally Lightening Up (And Taming the Heckler in Her Head)

Susan shares how fear and self-doubt lead her to quit stand-up comedy and how she discovered the healing powers of not taking life (or herself) too seriously. In the humourous style she is best known for, Susan reveals ways we can change our mind to reclaim that joyful true nature we so freely experienced and expressed at the very beginning of our lives.

Seeing Changes and Challenges in a New Light

This program is a lighthearted reminder that there is always more than one way of seeing things and shares ways to view (and interpret) circumstances that create resiliency in the face of adversity.

Seeing Change In A New “Light”

In this lighthearted presentation, Susan shares a dramatic change that occurred in her career several years ago that reveals our common sources of struggle with change and powerful truths about change. Based on lessons she learned the hard way, Susan will offer your group three ways to see change that can lessen the struggle and help them face uncertainty with a positive outlook, and of course, a sense of humour.
