You could count the number of comediennes who add to the humour of comedy panel shows and the like – e.g. Mock The Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats – on the fingers remaining on one hand after an accident with a chainsaw. Most comediennes contribute little to nothing, and often reduce the quality of humour, as the male colleagues strain to be PC in their presence. Needless to say, feminist comediennes are by far the worst of the bunch e.g. Sandy Toxic, Kate Smurfwaite, Zoe Lyons…
So I was delighted last night to see the Irish-Canadian comedienne Katherine Ryan on BBC2. Katherine always makes great contributions to comedy panel shows and the like – she’s particularly good on Taskmaster – and has two attributes unknown among feminist comediennes, being both drop-dead gorgeous, and hilarious. Her Wiki page is here, her website here. Katherine was hosting an episode of Live at the Apollo, and as you’d expect with the BBC, it was a repeat. You’ll be able to catch it on iPlayer (if you have a TV licence) here (30 minutes) for the next four weeks. An earlier episode (2014) on YouTube is here (7:00).
Remarkably, she mentions male circumcision towards the end of her piece, and she’s followed by two male comedians, including ‘Herman the German’, who’s always worth catching. He’s lived in the UK for many years.
