Katharine Ferns began her stand up career in Canada where she developed her confessional and brutally honest storytelling style of comedy. Now she sweetly charms her audiences with frank observations on relationships, stories of her family and past misadventures in her new home of London, England. In 2012, Katharine was a finalist in the Toronto’s Funniest Comedian Contest at Just For Laughs (JFL42). She has also opened for Big Jay Oakerson, Ari Shaffir, Kurt Metzger, Tom Segura, SamTripoli, Baron Vaughn, Brian Redban from Deathsquad and Brendon Walsh. Katharine was nominated for the 2013 Fresh Meat Competition for the Tim Sims Encouragement Fund sponsored by The Second City, Toronto. Katharine was featured on the ichannel (Canada’s political and social issues network) in the stand-up series No Kidding and as a panelist on Inside Joke in 2014. She also appeared in an episode of MTV's Losing It and several theatrical productions with the Pine Tree Players in Alberta. Katharine also hosted a monthly show COMEDY INFERNO and was the weekly headliner at the Hot Box in Toronto. In 2014 Katharine moved to the UK to continue her career in her family’s home country. That year she was a finalist in the Laughing Horse New Act Competition and in 2015, Katharine brought her 4 star debut solo show Conscious, Incompetent to the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals. This show was recently recorded by SIRIUS XM in Toronto and will be available on itunes in 2016.
