KATIE PRITCHARD

ACTRESS * COMEDIAN * MUSICIAN * WRITER

I am an actress, musician, and attempting to be a comedian. I have worked on the West End, Number 1 UK Tours, performed at regional venues, host my own radio sketch show "Literally Comedy" - the only show to be set in my very imaginary bookshop...I think?!, run my own comedy club - Variety of Kings, have written for hit show NewsRevue, ran my own award-winning production company (well, we won the Ideas Tap Best 60 Second Parody Award) where we developed comedy shorts, write a poetry blog under the guise of fictional character Deirdre called "Deirdre Does Poems", have run three London Marathons, as well as being the guitarist in award-winning all-girl Rock'n'Roll band The Daisy Chains (Winners of The London Vintage Awards, Finalists of The National Vintage Awards). I began comedy about two and a half years ago, and I'm having an absolute blast!

HURRICANE KATIE

My brand new comedy show is wafting it's way around the UK causing much wind wherever it goes!!

 

★★★★ - Female Arts Magazine

 

"Katie Pritchard specialises in all things comedy carnage. Star (*in this instance, please take 'star' to mean 'sole performer') of comedy sketch podcast - "Literally Comedy" - Pritchard brings this whirlwind show to the UK.

 

Come along and enjoy sublime craziness, all in the name of fun. Performing in her unique Alternative Musical Stand-Up style, expect characters, sweets, parodies, and original songs on her Ukulele called George. She is also very proficient at impersonations of inanimate objects, and is a professional kazoo player. It's going to be one big magical mystery tour around the inner workings of her brain. Who knows what could happen?"

 

THIS YEAR it is set to hit Manchester's Women In Comedy Festival, and Nottingham Comedy Festival. Want to be there? Well...come along!! Everyone over the age of 16 is welcome!!

On the radio...

Recently, I've had the distinct pleasure of being invited to radio on some wonderful podcasts and radio shows. Catch up with my on air shenanigans here...
