Colchester Events is excited to announce that comedian and TV favourite Katherine Ryan is to bring her brand-new live show Missus to Colchester’s Charter Hall.
Katherine, star of Netflix smash hit series The Duchess and a treasured stalwart on British panel shows, will be touring major theatres and arenas across the UK, including the London Palladium, from early September 2021 – performing for one night only at Charter Hall, on Thursday 20 January 2022.
Having previously denounced partnership, Katherine has since married her first love – accidentally – and audiences can look forward to hearing Katherine Ryan’s always-hilarious new perspectives on life, love, and what it means to be a Missus.
Councillor Theresa Higgins, Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services said: “Katherine Ryan is currently dominating the television and live comedy scenes both in the UK and abroad and it will be a delight to welcome her once again to Colchester. After selling out her 'Glitter Room' tour with us in 2018, we can't wait to welcome her back for another amazing show.
“It’s great to see such popular and talented stars coming to our town and we are always very proud to welcome them to the Charter Hall stage. Get set for another great night out in Colchester.”
Colchester Events is predicting another fast-selling event. Tickets are available from 10am, FRIDAY 16TH OCTOBER at www.colchester-events.co.uk/event/katherine-ryan/
Colchester Events is part of Colchester Amphora Trading Ltd (CATL) – a Colchester Borough Council commercial trading company. CATL is structured to ensure profits are returned to the council for the benefit of the people of the borough.
Katherine Ryan’s debut 6 x 30’ Netflix sitcom The Duchess was released in September 2020 and leapt to the top of the UK Netflix chart – spending over a week in the number one spot. Katherine not only stars in the lead role, but also wrote and executive-produced all episodes. The series has amassed a legion of fans and some fantastic reviews. The Times remarked: “Every other line is a perfect stand-alone haiku of comic brilliance”, Camilla Long of The Sunday Times wrote: “It's a savagely rude and whip-smart sitcom based on Ryan's experiences as a single mother, and I devoured it in one sitting”, and Scott Bryan of the BBC said: “It’s a must-watch… I found it very honest and very, very funny”.
The Duchess follows two critically-acclaimed stand-up specials for Netflix – the second of which, Glitter Room, was released globally on 1 July 2019, following 2017’s In Trouble. Katherine was only the second UK-based comedian to get a Netflix Global 60’ special released in all territories after Jimmy Carr – and is still the only woman.
Katherine will soon be seen hosting the primetime BBC Two talent competition series All That Glitters, which features eight talented jewellers going head to head (a Bake Off for jewellery making). She will also soon grace our screens as Joan Rivers in When Joan Kissed Barbra for Sky Arts’ Urban Myths series.
Katherine also has an acclaimed, hugely popular podcast entitled Telling Everybody Everything, which began life at the start of lockdown and hasn’t yet been out of the UK Comedy Podcast Top Ten. It is hosted by Acast.
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. Earlier this year, Katherine 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 tentpole Alternative Election Special with Krishnan Guru Murthy in December 2019.
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 – alongside host Jimmy Carr. 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 – as well as giving her own inimitable talk on Comedians Giving Lectures.
Outside of television, Katherine has sold-out venues across the UK, US and Canada with her unique shows. She took her last offering, GLITTER ROOM, to The Garrick Theatre in London’s West End for a four-week run after a sell-out nationwide tour.
Tickets are available from 10am, FRIDAY 16TH OCTOBER. For more information visit at www.colchester-events.co.uk/event/katherine-ryan/
