  • She has perfect timing and enough attitude to stop an elephant in its tracks

    Time Out
  • Katherine Ryan is certainly one to watch. She is innovative, original and hugely charming. Her material never crosses into lazy cliche’s but instead provides an insightful, savvy and most importantly massively entertaining evening of comedy.
