After "the sort of perfectly structured Edinburgh debut you always hope for and rarely get to see" (The Times, ★★★★), Catherine has some new jokes she'd like to try.
Catherine Bohart is a comedian, writer and actor.
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).
Also in 2016, she and fellow comic Cally Beaton performed their show Catcall for a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe, enjoying packed houses and a series of stellar reviews across the month. She has since gigged for the likes of The Stand, Komedia and Up The Creek. In August 2017, Catherine performed as part of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve at the Edinburgh Fringe. 2018 saw Catherine support Ellie Taylor on tour, get nominated for Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year and take her debut solo show, Immaculate, to the Edinburgh Fringe. The show enjoyed a sold-out run, was one of The Guardian’s Best shows at The Edinburgh Fringe and was met with widespread critical acclaim.
As well as her work as a stand-up, Catherine is 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 The Mash Report, The Now Show, The News Quiz, Newsjack and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order. She has also co-hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra Comedy Club with Arthur Smith, taken part in The Paper Review with Penny Smith on talkRADIO and appeared on Reasons To Be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd. In 2017, she was named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist, dedicated to listing the most exciting emerging broadcasting talent.
