Katherine Ryan is currently dominating the television and live comedy scenes, both in the UK and abroad. Her debut 6 x 30’ Netflix sitcom The Duchess was released in September 2020 and leapt to the top of the UK Netflix chart – spending over a week in the number one spot. Katherine not only stars in the lead role, but also wrote and executive-produced all episodes. The series has amassed a legion of fans and some fantastic reviews. The Times remarked: “Every other line is a perfect stand-alone haiku of comic brilliance”, Camilla Long of The Sunday Times wrote: “It's a savagely rude and whip-smart sitcom based on Ryan's experiences as a single mother, and I devoured it in one sitting”, and Scott Bryan of the BBC said: “It’s a must-watch . . . I found it very honest and very, very funny”.
The Duchess follows two critically-acclaimed stand-up specials for Netflix – the second of which, Glitter Room, was released globally on 1 July 2019, following 2017’s In Trouble. Katherine was only the second UK-based comedian to get a Netflix Global 60’ special released in all territories after Jimmy Carr – and is still the only woman.
Katherine will soon be seen hosting the primetime BBC Two talent competition series All That Glitters, which features eight talented jewellers going head to head (a Bake Off for jewellery making).
She will also soon grace our screens as Joan Rivers in When Joan Kissed Barbra, opposite The End of the F***ing World’s Jessica Barden as Barbra Streisand, for Sky Arts’ Urban Myths series. It will be available in October on Now TV as well as Sky Arts.
Katherine also has an acclaimed, hugely popular podcast entitled Telling Everybody Everything,which began life at the start of lockdown and hasn’t yet been out of the UK Comedy Podcast Top Ten. It is hosted by Acast.
She has co-hosted six series of Comedy Central’s smash hit show Your Face or Mine, with Jimmy Carr, and has judged four series of Comedy Central’s hit show Roast Battle. Earlier this year, Katherine was a team captain on E4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats series 22, along with fellow team captain Rob Beckett and host Jimmy Carr. She hosted the marquee all-female 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Special (C4) in 2018, and has been a regular contributor on Cats Does Countdown for many series. She also co-hosted Channel Four’s tentpole Alternative Election Special with Krishnan Guru Murthy in December 2019.
Having been a treasured stalwart on British panel shows for many years, Katherine was a team captain on Netflix’s first ever global comedy panel show The Fix – alongside host Jimmy Carr. She has made countless appearances on UK television, from the BBC’s smash hit series Who Do You Think You Are? alongside hosting Have I Got News For You three times and appearances on Would I Lie To You?, QI and Live at The Apollo, to being a contestant on Dave's Taskmaster series 2 and the Champion of Champions Special – as well as giving her own inimitable talk on Comedians Giving Lectures. Other notable TV credits include C4’s Travel Man with Richard Ayoade, The Big Fat Quiz of The Year (C4), The Big Narstie Show (C4), A League of Their Own (Sky), The Jonathan Ross Show (ITV), The Big Fat Quiz Of Everything (C4), and as team captain on Sky’s flagship series Bring The Noise. On top of all this, Katherine hosted C4’s factual-entertainment series How’d You Get So Rich?, based on the original series hosted by Joan Rivers. She was also the host of The Stand-Up Show with Katherine Ryan, for The Comedy Network in Canada.
Outside of television, Katherine has sold-out venues across the UK, US and Canada with her unique shows. She took her last offering, GLITTER ROOM, to The Garrick Theatre in London’s West End for a four-week run after a sell-out nationwide tour.
