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'. Other acting roles include the regular role of 'George' in Victoria Pile's Channel 4 series CAMPUS and the reoccurring role of 'Merc's Assistant' in the second series of EPISODES. Katherine also recently shot short film ACOUSTIC KITTY alongside Ben Willbond, 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.

Following a *SOLD OUT* debut UK tour of NATURE'S CANDY, she's about to kick off her new live show GLAM ROLE MODEL on an Autumn nationwide tour.

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