Catherine Bohart is an award-winning comedian, writer and actor. Catherine began performing stand-up in 2015 and has enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks of UK and Irish comedy, becoming a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women the very next year.
2016 also saw Catherine and fellow comic Cally Beaton perform their show Catcall for a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe, enjoying packed houses and stellar reviews. The following August, Catherine joined the line-up of the prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve.
Catherine took her debut solo show, Immaculate, to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. Immaculate received widespread acclaim, with The Times describing it as “the sort of perfectly structured Edinburgh debut you always hope for and rarely get to see.”
Catherine returned to the festival in 2019 with her second hour-long show, Lemon. It enjoyed a month of sold-out performances and excellent reviews before being brought to jam-packed audiences at London’s Soho Theatre.
Catherine will tour Lemon in the UK and Ireland this year and it is heading to Whelans this Friday, March 6. Tickets for the show can be found here.

Catherine who is originally from Clonsilla, met her partner, fellow stand-up comedian Sarah Keyworth in 2015.
She has spoken about living with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and being the bisexual daughter of a Catholic deacon.
Catherine says she never had a problem coming out to her parents, which she discussed in her previous show Immaculate:
“I have a good relationship with my father. A lot of the time you see stories about families who are religious and the kids are queer and the kid gets kicked out or they never speak to each other again. But most families who are religious do figure it out so I wanted to get that across. My dad is a dude. He’s a Catholic so he has to forgive me!”
