CANADIAN comic Katherine Ryan is graduating to York Barbican on Saturday after three Hyena Lounge Comedy Club gigs in the city last year.

Familiar from her smart-mouthed telly spots on Live At The Apollo, QI and The Jonathan Ross Show, the fast-rising Ryan will be presenting her warped-witted Kathbum show this weekend.

In 2015, Ryan played two successive Saturday Night Lounge gigs at The Duchess in late January, followed by the "smallest date on the whole of her spring tour" on May 6, when she presented her Glam Role Model show, again at The Duchess.

Tickets for the pop culture-obsessed Ryan's 8pm gig are on sale at £20 and £17 on 0844 854 2757, at or in person from the Barbican box office.
