Catherine Bohart


A comic with both a distinctive voice and a story you’d like
to hear

Steve Bennett, Chortle


Catherine started performing stand-up in 2015 and since then
has enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks of UK and Irish comedy. In 2016, she
was a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women,
drawing praise in the final of the former for having "a distinctive voice and a
story you’d like to hear” (Chortle) and in the latter for being "pretty much
the perfect comedy package” (Beyond The Joke).

Also in 2016, she and fellow comic Cally Beaton performed
their show Catcall for a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe, enjoying
packed houses and a series of stellar reviews across the month.  She has
since gigged for the likes of The Stand, Komedia and Up The Creek, and in
August 2017, Catherine will perform as part of the prestigious Pleasance
Comedy Reserve at the Edinburgh Fringe.

As well as her work as a stand-up, Catherine is also a
trained actor having studied an MA in Acting for Screen at the Royal Central
School of Speech and Drama. Her burgeoning broadcasting career has already seen
her write material for BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, The News Quiz and Newsjack, plus
be interviewed on Tim Arthur’s BBC Radio London show alongside Shazia Mizra and
take part in The Paper Review with Penny Smith on talkRADIO. In 2017,
she was named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist for 2017.
