Moving to Los Angeles gave Susan her first taste of what show biz had in store for her. She rapidly became a regular at the Icehouse in Pasadena, Igby’s. The Comedy Store, and worked for the Improvs. She rapidly moved up the performance ladder and headlined many of the clubs of the 1990’s; Laff Stops, Last Laugh’s, Stanfords and Comedy Connections.
Rice learned from wonderful headliners on the road. Comic’s like; Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Hicks, Sam Kinnison and Paula Poundstone.
