Bio

Comedian & mental health advocate Susan Stewart delivers a blend of wit and wisdom to help people see the lighter side of life. While giving audiences lots of good laughs, she delivers powerful messages about stress management, resiliency, and mental health.

After earning a degree in theatre arts from the University of Waterloo, Stewart began performing stand-up comedy. Three years into her comedy career, she fell into a clinical depression and struggled with anxiety which eventually led her to quit performing. When she got back on her feet, Stewart transitioned into the world of human resources as an organizational learning and development consultant with the Ontario government.

A year into her new career, Stewart was asked to create and deliver a comical presentation about wellness for an upcoming staff professional development conference. Her presentation was a smash-hit, and she eventually left her HR career to return to deliver comical presentations about wellness full-time. For the past 15 years, Stewart has been entertaining audiences and sharing ways to meet adversity with courage, confidence, and a sense of humour.

Stewart is the author of Reaching the Laugh Resort: Why the Journey to Remembering Who You (Really) Are is Worth the Jet Lag; Your New Lenses are Ready for Pick Up: A Guide to Seeing the Lighter Side of Life; and You Gotta Laugh: Wit And Wisdom About Not Taking Life (Or Yourself) Too Seriously.

Stewart’s podcast, Still a Hot Mess, and comedy album, Relentless, are both available on Spotify and iTunes.
