The feisty, pop-culture-obsessed Canadian comic and Funny Women winner boasts a stream of TV credits from QI and Have I Got News to Episodes and the BBC contest to find the best amateur hair stylist. She’s also stormed Live At The Apollo. The Scotsman hail Katherine as ‘Joan Rivers’ heir apparent.’


Katherine Ryan is a Canadian comedian, writer and actress. She has appeared on a huge range of panel shows, sit-coms, and has won the prestigious Nivea Funny Women Award.

A natural performer with a superb line in pop cultural observations and occasionally outrageous, bitchy remarks Katherine has a unique, endearing charm tempering her biting comments. Her material covers the world’s obsession with celebrity, why real life doesn’t quite measure up to theirs, and speculates on the lives and thoughts of the young royals, Beyoncé, Cheryl Cole, and the Kardashians. She points out how ridiculous it is to know what Joey Essex is up to at any given moment and how turning terrorists into celebrities might help the world keep track of them. Katherine combines her biting wit with a superb affinity for audiences, drawing them in and involving them in the show.

Katherine has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Mock the Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, 8 out of 10 Cats, The Apprentice: You're Fired and the Radio 4 institution The News Quiz. She’s been a regular on comic challenge show Taskmaster and music quiz Bring the Noise, and has also appeared in Channel 4’s college-based comedy Campus, BBC2’s Episodes, and has hosted BBC Two reality contest Hair.
