Whether she's deconstructing a day at Ikea or explaining her hometown of Kitchener-Waterloo's love affair with Swiss Chalet and Tim Hortons, up-and-coming comic Susan Stewart always finds the absurd in the everyday. The high-energy and openly gay stand-up has been cracking up alternative clubs like the ALT.COMedy Lounge and Spirits' Open Mike for nearly two years. Next month she co-stars in a much-anticipated gay and lesbian comedy night at Tom Foolery's. But tonight (Thursday, March 21) her comic profile gets a bit bigger as she appears on the all-women bill at the March Of Dames fest. See Comedy Listings for details.
