"This is hair-raising stand-up of the kind that used to be the exclusive territory of the Bad Boy Comics. And this woman is kicking some serious comedy ass in their playground."
"Plenty of laughs to be had"
"Brilliant comic observation after brilliant comic observation"
"You won't see many comics like Henson at the Fringe
or anywhere else."
Katharyn regularly hosts and performs comedy nightly all over New York City including but not limited to New York Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, The Stand, & The Comic Strip. Additionally, Katharyn performs in the UK and recently won The Black Out at Up the Creek and can regularly be seen at Top Secret Comedy Club in London.
In 2019, Katharyn made her Edinburgh Fringe Festival debut of her hour of stand up, "Ew Girl, You Nasty" to excellent critical review. Kate Copstick of The Scotsman exclaimed, “This show is a blast!" The Skinny awarded her **** and Pop Dust noted that "you won't see many comics like her at the Fringe or anywhere else." She has hosted a show in the New York Comedy Festival three years running and currently produces two weekly shows in NYC which she headlines.
Katharyn's current projects include co-hosting the podcast "Somewhat Scientific" with Meghan Walsh and "This American Irish Life" with Mark O'Keeffe. In March/April 2020, you can see Katharyn perform in "Hot Garbage" at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with Eve Ellenbogen and also doing her hour, "Ew Girl, You Nasty" at the Sydney Comedy Festival. This year she hopes to finally pay off an antique ring she bought on credit.
