Catherine Bohart is an award-winning comedian, writer and actor.
Catherine started performing stand-up in 2015 and since then has enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks of UK and Irish comedy. In 2016, she was a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women, drawing praise in the final of the former for having “a distinctive voice and a story you’d like to hear” (Chortle) and in the latter for being “pretty much the perfect comedy package” (Beyond The Joke).
2016 also saw her and fellow comic Cally Beaton perform their show Catcall for a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe, enjoying packed houses and a series of stellar reviews across the month. The following year, Catherine performed as part of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve at the Edinburgh Fringe and, in 2018, she took her debut solo show, Immaculate, to the festival. An autobiographical hour about her life as the bisexual, OCD daughter of the Catholic deacon, Immaculate received widespread critical acclaim, the Times newspaper describing it in their four star review as “the sort of perfectly structured Edinburgh debut you always hope for and rarely get to see.”
As well as her live work, Catherine’s burgeoning broadcasting career has already seen her appear on Comedy Central UK’s Roast Battle and BBC2’s The Mash Report. In addition, she has written material for BBC shows The Now Show, The News Quiz, Newsjack and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order, co-hosted BBC Radio 4 Extra Comedy Club with Arthur Smith and appeared on Reasons To Be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd. She was also named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist for 2017, dedicated to listing the most exciting new broadcasting talent in the UK.
