Katherine Ryan

London-based Canadian comedienne, Katherine Ryan, may catch your attention with her long blonde hair and model good looks, but she’ll keep it thanks to her sharp tongue and sassy wit, and you’ve probably caught her on a few late night panel shows. Looking at pop culture, today’s feminism and her own life, Glam Role Model will be the first of many shows Down Under for this hella-funny gal.
26th March – 19th April – Melbourne Town Hall, Melbourne

Nina Conti

Turning ventriloquism on its head and making it a high-quality comedy sketch that you laugh instead of cringe at, Nina Conti has taken on almost every UK TV show and innocent but obliging members of the audience to create a show full of cheeky dialogue, hilarious characters and very clever voice work. Will you dare to sit in the audience of In Your Face?
