As well as being a writer-performer Katherine is also a talented actress and played the lead role of George in Victoria Pile's Channel 4 series Campus. Katherine also appeared regularly throughout the second series of Episodes as Merc's Assistant. 'She has perfect timing and enough attitude to stop an elephant in its tracks' (Time Out) 'If only every comedian was as acerbic, smart and downright funny as Katherine Ryan' (Eastern Daily Press) 'This entertaining hour... flies by... all the hallmarks of an increasingly assured comic...' (Steve Bennett, Chortle) 'Warped wit... striking presence... killer lines... calm confidence' (The Scotsman) 'Thoughtful, funny and just twisted enough' (The Times).

'Thomas Ward is a stand-up comedian. Increasingly on the radar of promoters and punters alike for his unique style, you will find him in London and the British beyond taking you sideways, on his search for meaning, through the familiar worlds of carpet adverts, supermarkets, impersonations and tales of teenage love' (Comedy CV). 'Fine writing, evoking silly images and ideas, combines with a distinctive look to make him memorable" (Steve Bennett, Chortle). 'Inventive stand-up Thomas Ward; a spaced-out, sometimes poetic comic with a terrifying fringe, and a very funny take on the world' (The Stage). 'Intriguing... with an air and a style that was partly conventional but partly bizarre, as if the world had been ever-so-slightly knocked off its axis' (Bruce Dessau).
