Hughes Under the Hammer
With both comedians in the semi-finals of the international Funny Women Competition and the LGBTQ New Comedian of the Year Awards 2022, they’ll not only make you laugh, but might make you a bit gay????
Kate Hammer brings honest, deeply personal, and playful humour to the stage – a veteran of Just for Laughs, POP Montreal, and the Fringe, as well as a quarter-finalist of the Leicester New Comedian of the Year Awards 2022, Kate discusses everything from her experiences of growing up on a goat farm, to her intricate opinions on phone storage options. An animated, character-driven performance from a person who doesn’t understand the term “inside voice”, you’ll love this if you love seeing neurodivergency personified.
“Great charisma and dynamism […] means Kate is easily able to hold our attention… fun and engaging.” – Chortle
“Kate’s naturally got it in her, it’s incredible. I just want to hear more.”— Rachel Parris
Kathleen Hughes is the dry, witty comedian of your dreams. Her fresh, insightful humour has cemented her as one to watch in Scottish comedy and saw her to the final of Gilded Balloon’s national “So You Think You’re Funny?” new act competition in 2021.
Tackling subjects such as identity, gender, and mental health, Kathleen makes the most daunting topics accessible with bright and welcoming humour.
“Relatable material from a likably open and adroit performer” – Chortle
“[Kathleen is] a ridiculously talented comic” – Billy Kirkwood
