At the Podium

At the podium, Essman shares with audiences the story of her tough road to comedy stardom, both as a woman breaking barriers in a male dominated industry; and having that same career pull her out of a debilitating and suicidal depression.

Susie was wonderful—funny, professional, and easy to work with. We loved her!

About Susie Essman

Susie Essman has played the sassy Susie Greene for all eight seasons of the critically acclaimed HBO comedy series Curb Your Enthusiasm. Her hilarious bouts of withering sarcasm and uninhibited insults have become her character’s trademark, and her streetwise vernacular is perfectly suited for her life in Manhattan, where she has been a veteran of the world of stand-up comedy for 25 years.
