THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER from the star of Netflix's The Duchess, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Your Face or Mine and host of All That Glitters
Award-winning comedian, writer, presenter and actress, TV's
Katherine Ryan, is currently dominating the television and live
comedy scenes, both in the UK and abroad. Born and raised in
Canada, she has lived in the UK since 2008 and currently lives in
London with her daughter Violet and husband Bobby.
Katherine created, starred in, wrote and executive produced her Netflix Original sitcom, The Duchess, which was released in September 2020 and leapt to the top of the UK chart. Her latest stand-up show, Glitter Room, had a four-week sold-out run at London's Garrick Theatre following a sell-out nationwide tour. Katherine has filmed two critically-acclaimed Netflix stand-up specials - Glitter Room and In Trouble. She was only the second UK-based comedian to release a 60-minute global Netflix special, after Jimmy Carr and until December 2020, she was the only woman. She was also a judge on Netflix's first panel show The Fix.
Katherine will soon be seen hosting primetime BBC Two jewellery-making competition series, All That Glitters. She hosted the marquee all-female special of Channel 4's Cats Does Countdown and was a team captain on the most recent series of 8 Out of 10 Cats for E4. Katherine also co-hosted C4's 2019 tentpole Alternative Election Special with Krishnan Guru Murthy. She has been a stalwart on all the UK's major panel shows and has co-hosted six series of Your Face or Mine, alongside judging four series of Roast Battle for Comedy Central.
Outside of television, Katherine has sold-out venues across the world with her unique stand-up shows. Her upcoming 2021/2022 live show, MISSUS, will tour later this year with Live Nation. Katherine launched her hugely successful podcast, Telling Everybody Everything, in 2020 and it went straight to the top of the iTunes UK podcast chart.
