Award winning Canadian comedian, Kate Barron is the brutally honest, unfiltered voice in your head. Kate fought (and partied) through her naive 20-something phase of trying to find herself, and came out the other side. Now in her 30s, she's a fiercely loyal woman with a strong bull s#!t detector and the experience to back it up. After a lifetime of being told she is too big, too loud and too vulgar, by everyone from strangers to teachers, she decided to step on stage and start wearing those labels as badges of honour. Kate doesn’t do self-deprecating. She’s that confident friend you wish you had on speed dial when you need to be pumped up.
Full of hilarious and naughty stories about dating, sex, and being happily childless, Kate doesn't believe in pulling punches and captivates audiences with her charm and high-energy performances. Her material is not family friendly or for the faint of heart, but it might teach you a thing or two.
Kate's first solo show, 'Made You Lick' will be her Edinburgh debut in 2020.Book Now
