Star of Netflix smash hit series The Duchess (along with two global Netflix comedy specials: In Trouble and Glitter Room), comedian and TV’s Katherine Ryan makes a hugely welcome return to the stage with her brand-new live show Missus. Having previously denounced partnership, Katherine has since married her first love… accidentally.
A lot has changed for everyone, and we can look forward to hearing Katherine Ryan’s always-hilarious new perspectives on life, love, and what it means to be Missus.
Katherine Ryan is currently dominating the television and live comedy scenes, both in the UK and abroad. Her debut 6 x 30’ Netflix sitcom The Duchess was released in September 2020 and leapt to the top of the UK Netflix chart – spending over a week in the number one spot. Katherine not only stars in the lead role, but also wrote and executive-produced all episodes. The series has amassed a legion of fans and some fantastic reviews. The Times remarked: “Every other line is a perfect stand-alone haiku of comic brilliance”, Camilla Long of The Sunday Times wrote: “It's a savagely rude and whip-smart sitcom based on Ryan's experiences as a single mother, and I devoured it in one sitting”, and Scott Bryan of the BBC said: “It’s a must-watch . . . I found it very honest and very, very funny”.
The Duchess follows two critically-acclaimed stand-up specials for Netflix – the second of which, Glitter Room, was released globally on 1 July 2019, following 2017’s In Trouble. Katherine was only the second UK-based comedian to get a Netflix Global 60’ special released in all territories after Jimmy Carr – and is still the only woman.
Outside of television, Katherine has sold-out venues across the UK, US and Canada with her unique shows. She took her last offering, Glitter Room, to The Garrick Theatre in London’s West End for a four-week run after a sell-out nationwide tour.
