About Catherine
CB21_41479_Press_Sm.jpg

Catherine has fast become one of the most sought-after comedians in the UK and Ireland. She took her debut solo show, Immaculate, to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018 to widespread critical acclaim, with The Times describing it as “the sort of perfectly structured Edinburgh debut you always hope for and rarely get to see”.  

 

Catherine returned to the festival in 2019 with her second hour-long show, Lemon. It enjoyed a month of sold-out performances and excellent reviews before Catherine took the show on a UK and Irish tour, including a run of jam-packed performances at London’s Soho Theatre Mainspace. Her new show, This Isn't For You, will tour the UK & Ireland next year. 

 

The past twelve months have seen Catherine record Immaculate for her debut special as part of Soho Theatre Presents… for Amazon Prime Video. She has also made multiple appearances on shows such Mock The Week, Late Night Mash and The News Quiz, as well as recording stand up sets for both BBC2’S Funny Festival Live and Sky 1’s The Deirdre O’Kane Show.  

 

Catherine’s other broadcasting credits include Sky1’s A League Of Their Own, C4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Comedy Central UK’s Roast Battle, ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show, Dave’s Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier and BBC2’s Richard Osman’s House Of Games. She was also a regular correspondent on BBC2’s The Mash Report and has written material for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC2).  

 

Catherine co-hosted BBC Sounds Podcast and Radio 4 show You’ll Do and has appeared on multiple radio shows including The Now Show, The News Quiz, Museum of Curiosity and A Good Read.

 

Catherine also founded and co-hosts (with Helen Bauer) award-winning online stand-up gig Gigless. The gig has won a JOE.ie Award for Best Online Show and Catherine won a Chortle Award for Legend of Lockdown on the back of its success.

 

Catherine and Helen now host their weekly podcast Trusty Hogs.
