Comic Susan Murray loves the cheers and applause she receives at the end of her shows. She's a rising star on the UK comedy circuit. But when she leaves the stage, she's alone and, she admits, a little bit lonesome.
Ms Murray, 36, is one of the millions in Britain who are single but don't want to be. She has plenty of friends but she wants that someone special in her life. Now she's decided to do something about it. She's signed up to a variety of dating agencies. "The life of a stand-up comedian just renders you being single," Ms Murray says. "You're just busy working, working, working all the time, and I never meet people at work. "All the comedians I know are mad, ugly or married - or all three."
