Catherine Bohart : Work In Progress
New Date: Sunday 23rd January - 4pm



Catherine Bohart is an award-winning comedian, writer and actor.

Catherine began performing stand-up in 2015 and has enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks of UK and Irish comedy, becoming a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women the very next year.

2016 also saw Catherine and fellow comic Cally Beaton perform their show Catcall for a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe, enjoying packed houses and stellar reviews. The following August, Catherine joined the line-up of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve.

Catherine took her debut solo show, Immaculate, to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. Immaculate received widespread acclaim, with The Times describing it as “the sort of perfectly structured Edinburgh debut you always hope for and rarely get to see” in their four star review. Catherine returned to the festival in 2019 with her second hour-long show, Lemon. It enjoyed a month of sold-out performances and excellent reviews before taking the show on UK and Irish tour, including a run of jam-packed performances at London’s Soho Theatre Mainspace.

Catherine has also taken her talents overseas. Spring 2019 saw Catherine selected to join the line-up for New Order, which showcases the best in original and trendsetting UK comedy at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Catherine’s  broadcasting career has seen her appear on E4’s 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Comedy Central UK’s Roast Battle, ITV2’s The Stand Up Sketch Show, Dave’s Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier and as a regular correspondent on BBC2’s The Mash Report. Catherine has written material for BBC shows The Now Show, The News Quiz, Newsjack and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and E4’s Savage Socials. She has co-hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra Comedy Club with Arthur Smith, hosted a series of Funny From the Fringe for BBC Radio 4 Extra and was a guest on Reasons To Be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd. In addition, Catherine was named The Times Comedy Face To Watch for 2019 and featured on the BBC New Talent Hotlist for 2017.

2020 has also seen Catherine launch hit new BBC Radio 4 relationships podcast You’ll Do which she hosts with fellow comic Sarah Keyworth.

Catherine is also a trained actor, having studied an MA in Acting for Screen at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
