Kate Fox

Stand Up Comedian and Stand Up Poet

A Northern act whose quirky combination of comedy and wordplay has led to national success as a stand up poet and whose stand up comedy chops are well tuned and flexible enough to bring something different to any comedy bill or comedy cabaret. Booked from The Stand to The Buzz and from Latitude to the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Rooms, a warm act and compere who blurs the boundaries between stand up comedy and spoken word.
