An award winning light comedy. With shade.

Ever been treated like an inanimate object?  Katie has. 

She’s actually a friendly, lovable and hilarious real life person. Join her as she relives, through story and songs, all the times she was not seen as one.

Somewhere between the comedy of Victoria Wood, the comfort of going for a drink with your best mate and the high drama of Hamlet.* 

You’ll leave feeling empowered, enlightened and full of FIRE. 

Ever since Katie was cast as the lead in her primary school production of “Santa’s Snowmobile” she believed there was a place for her in show business. Since then named, speaking and full clothed roles have been harder to come by. 

Sexy Lamp is Katie’s “supremely assured" (The Guardian) solo show that brilliantly combines comedy, original songs and storytelling to shed a bright light on how ridiculous the industry can be and why Katie is refusing to stay in the dark.

*It is nothing like Hamlet. 

Age guidance: 12+


Winner of Show of the Week and Pleasance Pick of VAULT Festival 2019.
