I have seen rising comedy star Catherine Bohart perform to date on two occasions at Always Be Comedy. Each time Bohart gave a competent display of her comedic talents. She built up a constant stream of laughter with material largely on her bisexuality and the perils of growing up in Ireland with a Catholic Deacon for a dad. I found her to be a classy and engaging performer and her sets on both occasions were over with the audiences wanting more.
Bohart is a bright, cheery Irish comedian who seems to get funnier and funnier every time I see her. In January 2018, for my third time of watching her, she appeared at Always Be Comedy where she had grown in confidence and was fearless and very funny on stage.
I was delighted to see her debut solo show Immaculate at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018. Stories about her bisexuality and her Irish Catholic upbringing were very funny and she was very confident and easy-going on stage.
I also saw Bohart’s solo show Lemon at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2019. The show was about her experiences as a bisexual woman using very forthright sexual conversation, and abrupt asides featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The show was beautifully planned from an extremely confident and very funny performer.
The comedian also appeared as a guest for Vix Leyton’s Comedy Roulette in June 2020 describing experiences from topics generated at random from a machine. Bohart was very funny and proved to be a great guest and comedian.
In August 2020, she appeared for Always Be Comedy Online and at #SaveLiveComedy: Show Three. She was witty and enthusiastic with her Irish charm shining through as she described a forthcoming holiday with her partner and parents and living conditions during the epidemic.
A year later in August 2021, Bohart performed an hour of new material for the Camden Fringe at 2Northdown in London and in November 2021, she headlined Always Be Comedy. The new material mainly focussed ner experience of coping with lock-down and a recent break-up. Bohart’s confidence on stage gave her great skill and delivery in creating funny stories and especially cheeky grins to the audience checking to see if the routines worked or not.
The comedian made a superb compere for London Comedy Allstars that I saw at the Udderbelly, Cavendish Square in London in May 2022. She effortlessly and fearlessly chattied with the crowd who really took to her engaging wit and humour.
I watched Bohart’s wonderful solo show This Isn’t For You at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2022. A show involving bad guidance on life, about taking control, and effectively adapting to change, unwilling self-discovery and positive pessimism, the comedian delivered a beautifully assured, extremely confident and achingly funny performance as fellow comedians Ed Gamble and Ivo Graham looked on with the packed afternoon laugh-out loud-audience.
Bohart is a wonderful warm, endearing, and funny comedian who is highly recommended.
