In 2011, Katherine was awarded second place in the national Funny Women awards[1] and was, for two of the judges, their winning act.[2] Shortly afterwards Katherine was voted through to the quarter finals of the Laughing Horse New Act of The Year, which takes place in February 2012.[3] Katherine's distinctive look and deadpan style has seen her described as 'Stand out Stand up'[4] and the female Jack Dee.

She has performed at the Brighton Comedy Festival 2011[5] and is working with fellow Funny Women finalist Gabriella Burnel to prepare her first show for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012.
