Bookshelfie: Katherine Ryan (Live at Latitude)

Recorded in front of a live audience at Latitude festival, comedian and writer Katherine Ryan tells Yomi why no-one should be scared to be disliked. 

 

Katherine is a stalwart of all the big TV comedy panel shows, she’s presented numerous other programmes, and last year she wrote, starred in and executive produced her own sitcom, The Duchess, about a single mum living in London, which leapt to the top of the Netflix charts. 

She’s also toured sold out venues across the world with her stand-up shows, she hosts the chart-topping candid conversation podcast, Telling Everybody Everything AND she’s also found time to write her first book - The Audacity - a hilarious autobiography where she details her journey from a naïve ex-Hooters waitress fresh off the boat from Canada to comedy megastar. It’s out on September 30th and you can pre-order it here: https://bit.ly/KRAudacity.

 

Katherine’s book choices are: 

** How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran

** Bossypants by Tina Fey

** Yes Please by Amy Poehler 

** Everybody Died So I Got a Dog by Emily Dean 

** Jessica Simpson‘s autobiography Open Book
