About

Originally from Canada, Katherine  is a talented actress and writer/performer that is taking the UK television and stand-up scenes by storm.

She has just completed shooting for the second series of BBC Three’s BADULTS, playing Mathew’s love interest, Lucy. She played the lead role of George in Victoria Pile's Channel 4 series CAMPUS, as well as appearing regularly throughout the second series of EPISODES as Merc's Assistant. She recently shot the short film ACOUSTIC KITTY alongside Ben Willbond and directed by Jennifer Sheridan.  

Katherine appears as a regular guest on various panel shows including 8 OUT OF 10 CATS ,NEVER MIND THE BUZZCOCKS, QI, HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU and MOCK THE WEEK. In January of this year she performed on LIVE AT THE APOLLO with Jack Whitehall and Rich Hall.

She was voted to the final of BBC One's LET'S DANCE FOR COMIC RELIEF after a hilarious impersonation of Nicki Minaj performing Starships.

Katherine was the 2008 winner of the Nivea Funny Women Awards and is a fresh and bitingly funny addition to UK stand-up. She kicks off her new live show GLAM ROLE MODEL at the end of April with a run at the Soho Theatre and is planning an Autumn nationwide tour, details and tickets can be found here.

"She has perfect timing and enough attitude to stop an elephant in its tracks." - TIME OUT

"Delectable; cute.... her lines are beautifully written and the quality keeps on coming!" - AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL

"...dark remarks about her cancer treatment and sugary innocence made a striking combination." - EVENING STANDARD

"...has the potential to be the next big star of shock stand-up." - THREE WEEKS
