Katherine is a NYC based stand-up comic, actor and playwright. On stage, Katherine is a chronic oversharer, from her awkward attempts at intimacy to quieting the paranoid voices in her head. The youngest child from a devout Irish Catholic family, she experiences soul-crushing guilt and constant shame on a near-daily basis. Her solo show, SHIKSAPPEAL: Getting the Chosen to Choose Me, enjoyed a sold-out run in the 2012 New York International Fringe Festival and was named a reviewers' pick by Indie Theatre Now. She was recently interviewed for Morgan Spurlock's online series Failure Club.
