One of our lovely guests, Heather, went to see the hilarious Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan last week at the Tyne Theatre & Opera House in Newcastle on Thursday night as part of her highly anticipated Kathbum Tour. This is what she had to say…
“Go and see Katherine Ryan. The show is brilliant and she is hilarious.
Covering everything from Taylor Swift to Trump, Cheryl Cole (or whatever her name is now!) to Bill Cosby, her life back in Canada (you’ll find out why the show is called ‘Kathbum’) and accidentally falling in love on first dates, Katherine’s show is seamless and she makes it all work.
As soon as she walks on to the stage, boom! She’s into her material, unapologetically and entertaining with what some may call an acid tongue, I actually think is just straight up honesty. She’s not afraid to ‘go there’ or ‘say that’ and the audience embrace it all with a yells of laughter and applause after each line.
I attended with a group of women, naively expecting the audience to be similarly filled with women of our comparable ages, keen to see the comedian speaking with the kind of attitude we do. But with her appearances on comedy panel shows and a bash at TV presenting, Katherine’s comedic appeal seemed to cover both men and women and all ages. The audience was riveted to every story, every build up to a joke and sat wrapped up in the revelations of Katherine’s world.
Make sure you catch this top comedian live – you’ll have a blast!
An extra mention goes out to Lauren Pattinson, the local Newcastle comedian supporting Katherine on the night – a young comic with excellent stories and a great way with the audience.”
Don’t miss Katherine Ryan at the Eventim Apollo in London on Saturday 21st May. Tickets are available here.
