Episode Notes

Catherine Bohart is a really funny Irish comedian. The kind of funny whose jokes actually pay the rent (not in the ideal gaffe she would necessarily choose to, but still). She 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 for having a "distinctive voice and a story you'd like to hear" and for being "pretty much the perfect comedy package". Catherine has been named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist and was runner-up in the Irish Comedian Of The Year final. Catherine is also a trained actor and she has written for several BBC Radio 4 shows. She is debuting her first solo show at Edinburgh this summer.

Join us in getting to know Catherine better and hearing about her journey through the London comedy scene, self-doubt, confidence, political stances, writing, mental health, challenging suppositions and coming out to her Dad as bisexual while he revealed he was a priest.
