ED2012 Comedy Review: Katherine Ryan – Nature’s Candy (Live Nation & MHA)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Katherine Ryan is happy. Very happy. She generously shares this bounding happiness with you with wide-eyed wonder. Despite this, she is not afraid to go into dirty sexual detail or speak her mind. Including the discussion of celebrities’ “asses” and introducing her own TV show, “This Bitch” which exposes her love of derogatory names, Ryan sends the audience into fits of laughter. She learns that a male audience member is wearing a pink sock with hearts on it – which to her absolute glee leads to one liners about incest when she learns that the sock belongs to his sister. Wonderfully perceptive and full of happily gritty surprises, Katherine Ryan will put a smile on your face with her infectious enthusiasm.
