MIDDLESBOROUGH Town Hall welcomes Canadian comic sensation Katherine Ryan on May 16th.
The star of such shows as 8 Out of 10 Cats and Live at the Apollo, will bring her Glam Role Model tour to Boro on the back of a whirlwind year for the comic, which has seen her take her brand of dry comedy as far as Australia.
Ryan has definitely cemented her place as a household name in British comedy, and she is sure to get the crowd laughing at the Town Hall.
The 31 year old cut her teeth in comedy whilst attending open mic nights back in the States, which she claims was just another form of personal entertainment. The blonde comedy bombshell also used to fill her time by working at legendary American bar and diner Hooters.
She made her first British comedy appearances on shows such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Have I got News for You- but it was her hilarious guest appearance on BBC’s Live at the Apollo which saw her burst into the limelight.
She made some hilarious quips about female empowerment including a particularly funny skit of pop royalty Beyonce.
Ryan is not afraid to cross boundaries with her comedy, which leads to her being very much like Marmite, you either love her or hate her! But looking at the success of her latest tour, you would have to say the majority love her.
Tickets for the night are £14.50 – a small amount to see one of the best young talents in the business. They are available via Ryan’s website, http://ift.tt/Xe8jqL and also at the Middlesbrough Town Hall box office.
It would appear Middlesbrough truly is an emerging hotbed of comedy.
