News: Katherine Ryan To Publish First Book

Katherine Ryan's debut book is to be published later this year.

The Audacity will be published by Blink on September 30, 2021

It will tell the story of Ryan's rise from working in Hooters to being one of the biggest comedy stars in the UK, having her own hit shows on Netflix and performing sell-out tours.

Chapters will include How to Potty Train Your Baby at 10 Months, How to Cut Off Your Racist Aunties, How to Marry Your High School Boyfriend and How to Co-Parent when you're a Single Mum.

Ryan says: "While I've been very blessed to have worked in comedy for over a decade, The Audacity gives me the opportunity to connect with people more fully and honestly than a panel show allows. I've learned to be a sharp-shooter on stage, but there are so many stories that I'm eager to tell in more sincere, longer form. I hope it gives people a laugh, an insight, and hopefully some encouragement on how to live their most fulfilled, authentic lives."

Katherine Ryan also has an acclaimed Netflix comedy The Duchess and a hugely popular podcast entitled Telling Everybody Everything, which began life at the start of lockdown.

Having been a treasured stalwart on British panel shows for many years, Katherine was a team captain on Netflix’s first ever global comedy panel show The Fix. She has made countless appearances on UK television, from the BBC’s smash hit series Who Do You Think You Are? alongside hosting Have I Got News For You three times and appearances on Would I Lie To You?, QI and Live at The Apollo, to being a contestant on Dave's Taskmaster series 2 and the Champion of Champions Special.

She has co-hosted six series of Comedy Central’s smash hit show Your Face or Mine, with Jimmy Carr, and has judged four series of Comedy Central’s hit show Roast Battle. She was a team captain on E4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats series 22, along with fellow team captain Rob Beckett and host Jimmy Carr. She hosted the marquee all-female 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Special (C4) in 2018, and has been a regular contributor on Cats Does Countdown for many series. She also co-hosted Channel Four’s Alternative Election Special with Krishnan Guru Murthy in December 2019.

Katherine Ryan is also scheduled to tour the UK later this year from September. Details here.
