Katherine Ryan

Edinburgh Preview: Katherine Ryan

I think Katherine Ryan is going to have to do a new photo shoot quicker than planned. The wonderfully elegant shots by Idil Sukan are adoring front pages of magazines and Edinburgh has not even started. Ryan is clearly on a roll, having already added extra dates to her Fringe run. Which I guess proves this. TV exposure is great for ticket sales, but only if people find you funny.

TV Review: Frankie Boyle's Election Autopsy, BBC iPlayer

So just when you thought every last comic pip had been squeezed out of the election here comes Frankie Boyle. The too-hot-for-mainstream-TV Scot is joined by the so-hot-they-are-on-everything twosome of Sara Pascoe and Katherine Ryan for this iPlayer discussion following the success of their previous online outing, Referendum Autopsy.

News: Impressive Line-Up For British Summer Time Comedy

The Barclaycard British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park has announced its comedy line-up for June 22 –  25.

Preview: This Comedian – Live, Duchess Theatre

I wrote recently about how sometimes it can be a frustrating for people who see a lot of comedy to hear the same comedians – however brilliant – do the same material every time you see them. This Monday’s all-star, must-see gig at the Duchess Theatre seems to have come up with the answer.

News: Producer Bans Critics From Gigs

Producer David Johnson has written that he is banning Telegraph comedy critics from his upcoming gigs. This follows the publication of the five "best jokes" at the recent Laughing Point charity gig on the Telegraph website.

TV Review: Frankie Boyle's Referendum Autopsy

Is the BBC so scared of Frankie Boyle offending viewers that they have banished him to iPlayer for this one-off post-mortem? Or have they decided that now that the Scottish Referendum is done and dusted not enough people are interested in the subject to warrant putting this out in the traditional way? Or maybe it’s a sneaky plan to drive viewers online. I’d have certainly thought this semi-serious talking shop deserved to be aired on Scottish television.

Preview: Latitude Festival

I thought I had the best job in the world. And then I met Tania Harrison. Tania is head of arts and comedy at Festival Republic, the UK’s leading festival and event promoter. One of her jobs is to organise the comedy for the upcoming Latitude Festival, which runs from July 17 - 20. This year’s headliners, Kevin Bridges, Simon Amstell and Dara O’Briain, really do need no introduction. Nor do Al Murray, Milton Jones, Sara Pascoe and Josie Long.


Edinburgh Fringe Preview: Katherine Ryan

I’m afraid this is another of those Edinburgh Fringe Previews that isn't quite what it seems. London-based Canadian Ryan is doing a short run in Edinburgh but has already completed a proper run at the Soho Theatre with her latest show, Glam Role Model. I saw it on the very first night and it felt like a bit of a work-in-progress then, a potentially great set in search of a suitable ending. Word has it that Ryan has found the ending since then.
