Katherine Ryan - Glitter Room SOLD OUT @ Charter Hall | England | United Kingdom

What does Canada’s first woman to have a worldwide Netflix special have in common with Britain’s first woman to have a worldwide Netflix special?  They are both single mothers with too many pets.  And they are both Katherine Ryan.  

This Canadian abroad is the UK’s 2017 break-out star. Katherine recently garnered rave reviews as the presenter and writer of Channel 4’s critically acclaimed prime time series, How Did You Get So Rich? and also regularly appears on all the UK’s major panel shows from BBC’s QI, Have I Got News For You and Live at the Apollo to Dave’s Taskmaster Series 2 (which she won) and Channel 4’s Out of 10 Cats as well as co-hosting two back to back series of Comedy Central’s upcoming Your Face or Mine reboot with Jimmy Carr.

As seen on Conan O’Brien, Lip Sync Battle, and instagram, Katherine Ryan brings her brand new stand-up show, GLITTER ROOM to the UK.

Originally from Canada and star of BBC’s LIVE AT THE APOLLO & WOULD I LIE TO YOU, Sky One’s A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, ITV’s THE JONATHAN ROSS SHOW and Channel 4’s 8 OUT OF 10 CATS DOES COUNTDOWN, Katherine is a writer / performer and stand-up comedian who is dominating the UK television and live comedy scenes.

She is only the second British-based comedian to have a Netflix Original Comedy Special released globally after Jimmy Carr. KATHERINE RYAN: IN TROUBLE was filmed at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo and was released to 190 countries on Tuesday 14th February 2017. Watch it here. She also performed stand up on THE CONAN O’BRIEN SHOW to publicise the special.

GLITTER ROOM is Katherine’s first UK tour since the hugely successful KATHBUM which had two sell-out nationwide UK tours as well as runs at the Edinburgh Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. The tour culminating at the Hammersmith Apollo for the Netflix record. She also appeared at the prestigious Oddball Festival where she performed in Toronto alongside Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer – she was the first UK based comic ever to perform at the festival.

Katherine will be performing GLITTER ROOM at the prestigious venue Caroline’s in New York from the 8th to the 11th June and then she has a six date run of GLITTER ROOM at the 2017 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal from the 24th to the 29th July.

Katherine can currently be seen co-hosting two back to back series (22 episodes) of the reboot of YOUR FACE OR MINE with Jimmy Carr for Comedy Central – the first episode aired on 17th May 2017. She can also currently be seen as team captain opposite Richard Osman in Channel 4’s new 3 x 60’ panel show FAKE NEWS, hosted by Stephen Mangan and produced by Hat Trick, after filming a one off special earlier this year.

This June Katherine will appear as a regular panellist on new topical series FRANKIE BOYLE’S NEW WORLD ORDER for BBC Two alongside Sara Pascoe.

Earlier this year Katherine co-hosted a new BBC Two comedy pilot, THAT THING ON FRIDAY NIGHT, with Joe Lycett and Romesh Ranganathan and also had a headliner stand-up set on ITV’s THE NIGHTLY SHOW and has upcoming appearances on ITV’s THE TIPPING POINT, Channel 4’s 8 OUT OF 10 CATS DOES COUNTDOWN, Dave’s GO 8-BIT and More 4’s 8 OUT OF 10 CATS.

She also wrote, starred in and Executive Produced her Sky Comedy short for their Ireland season, KATHERINE RYAN IN IRELAND (Merman Productions).

In 2015 she starred as a regular panellist in Sky One’s flagship music and comedy entertainment series BRING THE NOISE alongside Tinie Tempah, Nicole Scherzinger and Ricky Wilson. The show featured unmissable live musical performances and fun collaborations like this one. Katherine has hosted multiple episodes of COMEDY CENTRAL AT THE COMEDY STORE for Comedy Central and BBC1’s LIVE AT THE APOLLO. She also hosted HAIR a primetime BBC2 series about the world of competitive hairdressing bringing her unique comedy voice to the second series. 

‘One of the stand-out stand-ups of her generation’ ✭✭✭✭ The Times

‘Poised, uncompromising and often savagely hilarious.’  ✭✭✭✭  The Scotsman

Milton Jones is Out There @ Charter Hall

Milton Jones is Out There @ Charter Hall | England | United Kingdom

Milton Jones is Out There            

Milton Jones is Out There. No, really out there and this time he hasn’t just forgotten his keys. He’s holding up the mirror of truth to society, and he can see right through it, which means its probably just a window. In his brand new show he’ll be putting his foot down and lifting the lid on the pedal bin of lies of the media (which doesn’t include this press release obviously). He will also be scaling the heights of fashion at the risk of falling into a terrible cravat. Milton will be talking about his life so far – the ups, the downs and why buying his own see-saw was the best decision he ever made. But perhaps he should give all this up and seek the highest office in the land – but how do you get a desk and a swivel chair up a mountain? Oh and now he wants to be Prime Minister too. Can we do worse than the politicians we already have? Yes we can!
