Katherine Ryan

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.

Preview: The Week Ahead June 9 - 15

Pretty spoilt for choice at the Soho Theatre this week. As well as Stewart Lee doing yet more work-in-progress shows, there are two very different shows opening on Tuesday. I haven't seen Tom Rosenthal do stand-up for a while now but I’ve seen plenty of him on television.

Interview: Pappy's

Hold on to your takeaway pizzas, Matthew Crosby, Ben Clark and Tom Parry return to BBC3 on June 2 for the second series of Badults, in which they play three flat-sharing, prank-playing, fun-loving mates Matthew, Ben and Tom. Live comedy fans will know the trio as Pappy's – last year they picked up a Foster's Comedy Award nomination at the Edinburgh Festival, where they have a following bordering on the fanatical. Beyond The Joke asked the trio ten questions to find out more about the new series and their future plans.

News: Badults Returns For Second Series

Badults, the flatshare sitcom starring Foster’s Award nominees Pappy’s, is due to return to BBC3 for its second series next month. The anarchic comedy, fronted by Matthew Crosby, Ben Clark and Tom Parry, poses a number of new dilemmas for the trio, such as where's the best place to watch the World Cup?  What happens if you live your life by the roll of the dice? Are the neighbours Russian spies? And what's the best talent: magic, poetry or trampolining? The series was filmed in front of a live studio audience in Glasgow.

Preview: The Week Ahead April 21 - 27

Some truly interesting comedy for you this week. Adam Buxton is at the Duchess Theatre for five nights from April 21 as part of the two-week Invisible Dot season, with his acclaimed show Kernel Panic, mixing puerile humour with sophisticated spoofery, David Bowie skits and inspired takedowns of YouTube comments.

New Interview: Katherine Ryan

Katherine Ryan has been on the UK comedy circuit for a few years now but she is currently having a well-deserved surge in popularity. Panel show stints plus her Live at the Apollo appearance in which she sang the praises of Beyoncé's sex face have helped to bring her to the attention of a much bigger audience. It also helps that she is a much sharper comedian now than she was when she first emerged.
