Catherine Bohart is an Irish comedy writer and actor based in England best known for her socio-political segments on BBC TV's The Mash Report, her stand-up shows Immaculate (2018) and Lemon (2019), and for appearances on TV shows such as The Stand Up Sketch Show, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, and Frankie Boyle's New World Order.

Biography

Catherine Bohart is an Irish comedy writer and actor who was born in Dublin and raised in Clonsilla, Ireland. The daughter of a Catholic deacon and proudly bisexual, she often incorporates her unique, queer identity into her stand-up performances, reflecting on the various influences on her life. She also has obsessive-compulsive disorder and was once hospitalised for four months.

Bohart initially assumed she would become an actor after graduating with an MA from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London (2015), but successfully transitioned to stand-up and has risen rapidly through the ranks ever since. In 2016 alone she was a finalist in both the BBC New Comedy Awards and Funny Women, and in 2017 she joined the Pleasance Comedy Reserve and was named on the BBC New Talent Hotlist. In 2018 she took her debut solo show, Immaculate, for a full, month-long run, achieving great acclaim in the process, and this kickstarted a career on radio and television. She appears frequently on such shows as 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Jon Richardson: Ultimate Worrier, and Stand Up Sketch Show. A section of Roast Battle, in which she featured alongside partner Sarah Keyworth, was widely shared online because both women found fresh and creative ways to lambaste each other through humour.

Engaged, political comedy - albeit with a lighthearted, fun-filled touch - is where Bohart is most at home, having written committed, topical material for The Now Show, The News Quiz, and Newsjack. What's more, her short, socio-political segments on BBC's The Mash Report have gone superbly viral online, and she is also a regular contributor to the podcast The Guilty Feminist. Her 2019 stand-up show, Lemon, is a proud and confident reaction to a bizarre, negative audience review from her previous live tour, smashing stereotypes around sex, sexuality, and lesbian relationships with refreshing warmth and good grace.
