Catherine started performing stand-up in 2015 and since then has enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks of UK and Irish comedy. In 2016, she was a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women, drawing praise in the final of the former for having “a distinctive voice and a story you’d like to hear” (Chortle) and in the latter for being “pretty much the perfect comedy package” (Beyond The Joke).
As well as her work as a stand-up, Catherine is also a trained actor having studied an MA in Acting for Screen at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Her burgeoning broadcasting career has already seen her write material for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz, Newsjack and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order.
