Star of Netflix smash hit series The Duchess (along with two global Netflix comedy specials: In Trouble and Glitter Room), comedian and TV’s Katherine Ryan makes a hugely welcome return to the stage with her brand-new live show Missus.
Having previously denounced partnership, Katherine has since married her first love… accidentally.
A lot has changed for everyone, and we can look forward to hearing Katherine Ryan’s always-hilarious new perspectives on life, love, and what it means to be Missus.
Katherine Ryan is currently dominating the television and live comedy scenes, both in the UK and abroad. Her debut 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”.
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.
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.
Katherine Ryan is playing the Portsmouth Guildhall Saturday 5th March 2022.
